Our firm offers experienced and aggressive representation in civil, criminal, and family law litigation. Our attorneys are true trial lawyers who are not afraid to go to court and approach each case with a high level of personal attention, continuity, responsiveness, and cost efficiency.

We meticulously prepare for the possibility of trial in each case because it gives our clients leverage in our negotiations with prosecutors, opposing counsel and the best chance for success. Through a firm resolve and aggressive trial advocacy, we have helped many clients protect their rights, freedom, and future.

Additionally, we firmly believe that a strong attorney-client relationship is instrumental to success. That is why we take the time to answer our client’s questions and concerns personally, and treat each client with compassion and respect. Solid legal research, responsiveness to client needs, and our ability to effectively communicate with opposing counsel can often break through roadblocks to settlement. In case of a trial, clients can be confident they will receive strong representation in court.

We believe that it is this approach to the practice of law that sets us apart. There is simply no substitute for integrity.
