Representation you can TRUST

Few things in life are as stressful as a criminal accusation or being injured or hurt by the neglect or intentional acts of others.

Why you need an experienced trial attorney for your criminal case

There are many criminal defense and plaintiff's law firms but very few that take the time to really get to know the client and fewer still who are capable of representing their clients all the way through trial. Too often we get calls from clients who were forced to plead guilty to something they did not do or to accept a settlement because the lawyer lacked the skills or experience to take a case to trial. Our firm is different. We take our time to get to know our clients. We have built a solid reputation based on trust, integrity, exceptional representation and an unshakeable commitment to our clients. Whether you have been accused of a federal crime, military crime or state crime, we can help you in defending yourself, preserving your liberty, and protecting your career and future.
