When a personal problem goes to court, the process that follows is rarely an enjoyable one. A knowledgeable team of attorneys can make sure  that you don’t get taken advantage of in court and protect your interests from those who might seek to exploit them, whether your situation involves family or you just need a second chance.

Family Law

When a family is facing divorce, it is often one of the most stressful times of their lives, whether the divorce is contested of uncontested. Regardless of the situation, it is important that you get the help of a skilled family attorney. Without the help of a lawyer, the risk of being taken advantage of by your spouse arises and that could affect you for the rest of your life.

The situation only gets more complicated if there are children involved. Child custody and child support have a tendency to be battlegrounds in bad divorces and if you don’t have a good attorney, you could risk never being able to see your kids again, or paying your former spouse more money than you need to until the kids turn 18.

Estate Planning

Everyone in the world eventually passes on someday. It is an unfortunate fact of life but a very real one. Most people who die do so without a will and when that happens, all of the person’s assets are put under control of the courts, who will then appoint a trustee to distribute and sell all of the person’s remaining assets.



If you want to guarantee that your legacy is secured the way that you want it, call us as soon as possible. We can put your estate in order so that if something were to happen to you, all of your belongings and money will be used and distributed the way that you want them to be, not the way the courts do.

Criminal Defense

Not everyone who commits a crime is a criminal. Most are just people who made a mistake and need a second chance.

When you are charged with a crime, we evaluate all the evidence gathered and determine the best course of action from there. Ideally, we will work out a settlement with the prosecution without the case ever having to go to trial. Trials are expensive, time-consuming and stressful and although they have the chance to get a better outcome, they also run the risk of getting a much worse outcome. 

We will always try to settle a case without taking it to trial. However, we are always ready to fight for you if need be. Don’t let your opportunity for a second chance pass you by.
