When you combine their experience, perspective, and tenacity, there is no better team to trust to obtain the best possible result for your case.  Just take a look at our list of representative matters; we routinely obtain better-than-expected results for our clients through detailed analysis of the evidence and effective communication with authorities to tell your side of the story.

We explore all practical, legal, technical, and actual defenses and circumstances, through the eyes of a prosecutor, judge, and defense attorney, to ensure no stone is left unturned.  We pledge to vigorously defend our clients in a timely manner to ensure you can get your life back on track.

We do not accept all criminal clients, however if we accept your case, it is because we believe your cause is worth applying our reputation and track record to your situation.

We also work with clients in obtaining expungements and pardons for prior convictions so they can put their past behind them and regain rights they have forgone for too long.

If you have been charged with a crime, or if you are being investigated for a crime, schedule a consultation today.  We will promptly set time to discuss your case, your options, and how we can help you move forward.
