We have designed our practice and representation of our clients in an effort to be the only law firm you will ever need. We take pride in having a reputation for providing exceptional client service and a personalized approach to every case. Since most legal issues involve more than one area of the law, we take a team approach to addressing your legal needs.

Our diverse practice includes, but is not limited to, automobile and trucking accident litigation, nursing home abuse, pharmaceutical product liability, negligence and wrongful death, legal malpractice, elder financial abuse, consumer product liability, commercial litigation and criminal defense in state and federal court.

As a small, boutique law firm, we provide the personal attention that is often lacking in bigger firms. Our attorneys bring a wide and varied background of knowledge and experience from inside and outside of the courtroom to handling various matters for our clients.

We take great pride in being a small firm with a big firm impact. We do that by providing practical solutions tailored to achieve your goals in the boardroom, courtroom, living room or a conference room half-way across the country. We are committed to helping you, your family or your business in times of trouble caused by the legal issues facing you.
