How did your firm decide on the primary area of practice(s)?

The area of criminal law has always interested me.

What is your firm's point of view regarding clients educating themselves on legal issues?

When our firm represents clients, it is our job to inform them of the legal issues they are facing and potential outcomes on their case. The firm will advise our clients of the best course of action.

Is your firm willing to review documents prepared by clients?

The firm is willing to review documents that the client may have, but ultimately our firm handles the preparation of all required documents.

Is your firm willing to coach clients who want to represent themselves?

The legal system, especially the criminal system, can be very complex. The firm will provide legal counsel to clients and will meet with potential clients during a free consultation. The firm recommends that if you have been charged with a criminal offense, you hire a qualified attorney to assist you in the case.
