Our attorneys represent and advise clients in a variety of legal matters including criminal defense, including DUI/DWI and white collar crimes; family law, including divorce, custody, visitation and child support issues; personal injury, including motor vehicle accidents, products liability, and medical malpractice; and business law. Our attorneys and staff communicate effectively and demonstrate the strictest personal and professional ethics as well as the utmost concern for our clients. We are committed to effectively representing our clients and to achieving the best result possible for them. If that means going to trial, we will go to trial, but we encourage our clients to participate in alternative dispute resolution if it is a suitable option for them. Our approach focuses on each client's background, needs, and goals. We respond to client calls promptly, report on cases regularly, and minimize our clients' risk by keeping them informed of relevant changes in the law. Our years of experience, dedication to quality and understanding of the law are the foundations upon which our firm is built..

Family Law We handle family law matters including adoption,divorce,separation,premarital agreements,paternity,custody,visitation,child support,division of assets,and modification of custody and support. We encourage our clients to participate in alternative dispute resolution so that they have more control over the outcome of their divorce than they would otherwise have if a judge were to determine matters such as custody and visitation.
