What Is Our Best?

Diligent, attentive, cost efficient, detailed, thorough.

Does our approach affect your results?

You bet it does!

Because we are a small firm, we offer an attention to your concerns that big firms just can't match. We have the knowledge and commitment to guide you, advise you, and advocate for you.
We recognize how stressful our clients' contact with the legal system can be. What does it take to lessen that stress? Having your lawyer available to answer questions? Trust that your matter is being handled competently and with care? We think about better ways to serve you every day.

Our approach is almost always to first explore settlement. If we can reach a negotiated disposition to your case, the savings to both your pocket book and your emotional health could be significant.

On the other hand, sometimes other parties and their lawyers just aren't reasonable. In those cases, you need a strong attorney with trial experience to see your case through to the end and to achieve the best results possible for you.

Ready to help.

Our firm began as a Family Law practice. Over the years, our clients have asked us to represent them in related matters ranging from Supreme Court appeals to defending against criminal charges. Our successes have led us to broaden the scope of our practice over time. Tell us about your problems and concerns. Chances are that we can help you. If we feel you'd be better represented elsewhere, we'll certainly let you know and provide a good referral.

Why Choose Us?

We believe in conducting ourselves with integrity and honesty. We believe in being responsive and respectful to our clients.
