Take the first step towards clearing your name by contacting an experienced criminal defense attorney.

Our law firm's flexible approach:
All of our cases are different, because every client is different. If an attorney always takes the same approach, opportunities may be missed to develop an acceptable solution quickly and inexpensively. We are flexible about finding ways to serve our clients' interests. Whether the situation calls for an aggressive approach, or a more laid-back and friendly one, we do what it takes to serve our clients.

We take pride in being honest and serving our clients with a high level of ethics. As a result, our firm has earned a BV Distinguished Peer Review Rated by Martindale-Hubbell listing for its professionalism and ethics.

Preparation is the key to your success in court:
We prepare every case as though it will go to a jury. While the majority of cases never reach this point, it is always possible that an appropriate result will depend on the ability to go to trial. We have handled many trials over the years and have the courtroom experience and work ethic to achieve success with jury trials.
