Family Law

Family Law is the area of law that addresses domestic relations such as marriage, divorce, child custody, child support, and paternity. A substantial portion of our practice is dedicated to family law and our attorneys are not only experienced in the legal aspects family law, but also with the courts and the court system. As a result, clients can expect representation that is tailored to their specific needs.


Criminal Defense

Criminal Law covers everything from infractions and traffic violations to misdemeanors and major felonies. It also includes post-conviction matters, such as sentence modifications, PCRs, and appeals. We provide aggressive defense for clients charged with crimes, as well as for individuals who have already been convicted and are seeking an appeal or other post-conviction relief.


Elder Law

Elder Law addresses issues relating to aging and end-of-life matters, such as wills, powers of attorney, and estate planning. These are important matters that affect both the client’s life and the lives of his or her family members.


Personal Injury

Personal Injury covers the liability involved in accidents- whether it’s a car accident or a slip-and-fall. While we do not take medical malpractice or wrongful death cases, we would be happy to provide a referral.
