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

For almost two decades, our firm has been providing quality legal services to businesses of all types and sizes. Flowing from those business clients, is a need for other areas of practice. As a result, we currently are heavily engaged in providing legal services in the areas of criminal law, divorce and family law, bankruptcy law, estate planning, litigation, as well business legal services.

What experience or education distinguishes your lawyers from others?

A major factor distinguishing us from many other law firms is that most of our attorneys have owned businesses unrelated to law. This brings a unique prospective to the practicing attorney in that each of us are able to empathize with each client because each of our attorneys has life experiences similar to those of our clients because we set on the other side of our desk having many of the thoughts that our clients have when they first meet us.
