We provide comprehensive counsel in matters involving:
- Personal injury. We focus our personal injury practice on the needs of people who have been hurt in motor vehicle accidents, including car, truck and motorcycle crashes. We will pursue a prompt negotiated settlement of your claim and, if necessary, vigorously litigate your claim in court.
- Criminal defense. We handle the defense of a broad range of misdemeanors and felonies, from traffic violations and DUI/DWI to drug crimes, from assault and battery or domestic violence to sex crimes and homicide.
- Family law. We handle all matters related to or arising out of divorce, from the initial filing through determinations of child custody and visitation, child support, spousal support or alimony, and the division of marital assets and debt. We also represent men and women in domestic violence and adoption proceedings, and handle prenuptial/postnuptial agreements.
- Social Security disability claims. If you are unable to work due to illness or injury, we can help you determine whether you are eligible for benefits from Social Security. We will work with you to present your claim to an Administrative Law Judge of the Office of Disability Adjudications and Review.
