Firm Overview

I believe representing clients is a great responsibility and privilege. I take a personal approach to each client and to each case. You will have direct and personal contact with the attorney handling your case, never having your legal matters handled by a secretary, paralegal or assistant.

In many areas, we have not just broad, but deep experience that allows us to guide families through difficult transitions, counsel individuals charged with serious crimes, and fight for injured parties.
