Criminal Defense
We handle all criminal matters ranging from traffic infractions to felonies of the first degree. There is no case too large or small; every case is treated as a priority. We look forward to continuing to fight to protect the rights of the accused.
When accused of a crime, there is little more important than protecting yourself, your family, and your reputation. We understand the impact a criminal case can have on one's life, so we make sure to treat each case with the care and attention we would provide a personal friend or family member. Our attorneys handle every matter personally and when you call our office you will speak directly with the attorney handling your case.

Should you, a friend, or family member be accused of a crime, do not hesitate to give us a call to discuss how we can help.
DUI and DWI
Our attorneys have experience handling DUI cases from the moment of arrest through a trial by jury. Every DUI case is unique and requires individual consideration of the legal issues involved. We let our experience work for you.
The moment an individual is arrested for DUI, two processes begin - one with the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) and one within the criminal court system. When you are considering hiring a lawyer to represent you for your DUI case, be sure to consider both processes and how your lawyer is willing to protect your future.

Our attorneys personally handle every case, and when you call the office you will speak directly with the attorney handling your case. We believe this personal attention provides for a unified defense effort to put our clients in the best position possible.

Should you, a friend, or family member be arrested for DUI, please do not hesitate to call our office to discuss how we can help.

What experience or education distinguishes your lawyers from others

The best results are achieved when the other side knows you are not afraid to take a case to trial. Our attorneys have significant trial experience and are prepared to do what it takes to put our clients in the best position possible while keeping in mind the goals of each person we represent.

What distinguishes your law firm from others?

Our office treats every case as a priority because it is a priority to you. For many of our clients, it is their first time in the criminal justice system and we recognize the stress and anxiety caused by simply not knowing what will happen next. Our client-centered approach means each client receives the personal attention they deserve so they can feel comfortable with what is happening and can actively participate in their own defense. This allows our clients to get back to their lives and focus on what matters most to them.
