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

We decided to focus on OUI/DUI/DWI defense years ago because we recognize that good people are charged with this crime all the time. We want to help.

Facing this kind of charge doesn't make you a bad person. People from all walks of life, all occupations and all lifestyles get charged with Operating Under the Influence. While you may feel differently right now, hope is not lost. You have rights and you have options. Whether your case boils down to a poor decision, a mistake, a misunderstanding or the police just simply got it all wrong, we are prepared to protect and defend your legal rights.

Everyone's situation is different and we are well aware of that. The facts and circumstances behind your arrest are unique. Your life circumstances, finances, employment status and transportation options differ from those of others. We understand what needs to be taken into consideration when formulating a plan of action. How we handle your case will depend on your particular situation after a careful analysis of all relevant factors.
