Our law firm does not accept every case, allowing us to devote adequate time and resources to represent individuals, families and businesses effectively and successfully in the following areas:

  • Family law— We ask pertinent questions to protect you during your divorce. We thoroughly prepare your case for a negotiated resolution or if need be contested hearing as you confront child custody (the allocation of parental decision-making authority and parenting time) and child or spousal support disputes.
  • Criminal law—Knowing the details of your life, work and activities enables a criminal defense lawyer to formulate comprehensive legal strategies to protect your rights at trial and to recommend alternative options and sentencing if you are facing charges for Domestic Battery, DUI or other misdemeanors and felonies.
