Practice Areas

  • Real Estate-Our firm represents individuals and commercial clients in all proceedings and transactions that deal with residential and commercial real property, including purchase and sale, construction, mortgages and foreclosures, leases, land use & zoning, title examinations, quiet title actions, closings, landlord/tenant disputes, and management.
  • Wills & Trusts-A valid will instructs an executor and the court as to the decedent's wishes for personal and real property distribution and guardianship provisions for children. A trust places assets under the management of trustee at either the creation of the trust or the individual's death. A trustee has a fiduciary responsibility to manage the assets until the terms and conditions of the trust has been fulfilled. Our firm helps individuals protect their loved ones and plan for the distribution of their property and assets at their death through the drafting and updating of wills and trusts.
  • Probate & Estate Administration-Probate is the legal process by which a person's debts are paid and assets are distributed upon her or his death. Estate Administration includes the probate process as well as non-probate transfers of the deceased's assets. Individual state laws direct the probate court how to distribute the deceased's estate. State laws and procedures may vary, so it is important to consult a firm with expertise in this area of the law to ensure that the deceased's assets are distributed correctly.
  • State, Local & Municipal Law-Our firm has expertise and knowledge in the areas of powers and liabilities of state and local government and municipal corporations, including matters such as land use and zoning issues, municipal employment disputes, and injuries to person or property by municipal employees.
  • Bankruptcy-Our firm represents individuals in chapter 7 and chapter 13 bankruptcy proceedings, at both the state and federal level, that are initiated by either an insolvent individual or by creditors seeking to have the debtor's remaining assets distributed among the creditors and, thereby, discharging the debtor from further obligation or restructuring and reorganizing the insolvent's debt structure.
  • Business and Commercial Law-We provide a wide variety of services to our business clients including assisting in selecting the type of organizational entity under which to operate, negotiating and preparing business agreements, assisting in the sale and purchase of a business, obtaining financing and funding for business operations, and assisting in dissolution or business succession.
  • Criminal-Our attorneys defend the rights of people arrested and accused of criminal offenses. We handle all types of misdemeanor criminal cases involving minor infractions and traffic violations, including speeding tickets and drunk driving offenses.
  • DUI / DWI-Traffic violations can have serious criminal consequences, particularly when a driver is accused of driving under the influence. A conviction on DUI / DWI charges may result in fines, the revocation or suspension of your driver's license, and possible jail time. In addition, your insurance company may increase your rates to an unmanageable level. In defending against an impaired driving charge, you have many rights as a criminal defendant, including the right to cross-examine the witnesses against you, even if they are police officers. An experienced criminal defense attorney can make all the difference in such a difficult case.
  • Family Law-Our firm handles a full range of family law matters including adoption, divorce, spousal support, separation, premarital agreements, paternity, child custody, visitation, and child support.
  • Litigation and Appeals-We represent and advise clients who are or might become involved in a lawsuit or appeal as a result of a dispute, including prevention and settlement, in such areas as real estate, probate, personal injury, family law, and business and commercial matters.
  • Personal Injury-Our firm represents individuals involved in controversies alleging a wrong or damage to another's person, rights, reputation, or property resulting from events or activities such as motor vehicle accidents, defective products, slip and fall accidents, infliction of emotional distress, intentional misconduct, and negligence.

    Motor Vehicle Accidents-Many personal injuries result from motor vehicle accidents. Auto accidents may involve negligence on the part of drivers, including drunk driving and reckless behavior. If you are injured in a motor vehicle accident, our firm can assist you in receiving compensation for your injuries, lost wages, and other damages.

    Products Liability-We have years of experience in representing individuals who have been injured as a result of an unsafe product that was designed, manufactured, sold, and/or furnished by a person or company. We assist those injured individuals in bringing their claims and being fairly compensated for their injuries. Our attorneys have represented individuals injured by asbestos, apparel, alcoholic beverages, firearms, food and agricultural products, machinery and tools, medical products and devices, motor vehicles, pharmaceutical products, recreational products, and tobacco.

    Slip and Fall Accidents-Injuries suffered on another's property, whether in a home, on a sidewalk, or in a commercial building or shop, are often the result of negligent maintenance or even complete disregard for the safety of others. If you or a family member have been injured in a fall or other accident away from your home, you may have a premises liability claim.

    Wrongful Death-If you've lost a loved one in an accident or as the result of a faulty or defective product or piece of equipment, our firm can represent your interests against the parties at fault and their insurance companies to seek damages on your behalf.
