Sample Cases and Results

We work individually with each client toward a custom pricing and payment solution to fit the client's needs, abilities and budget. We understand that most people never plan to need an attorney do not budget for them in advance. There will always be someone else willing to work for less, but this is about more than just finding the lowest bidder. This is about the security of your family, your business and your future. If we enter a case early enough in the process, we can usually offer a wide array of funding options.

We understand that those in need of top-quality legal defense often have questions that they want answered quickly and clearly. That's why we never have and never will charge you for your initial consultation. Use this convenient online form to tell us a little something about you and your case and schedule your free visit. During that free initial consultation, we will discuss your legal issue, your goals, concerns and expectations for us, and what we think we will be able to do for you.

We are proud of our record of satisfied clients who turned to us in their time of need and encourage their friends and family to do the same. When their freedom was at stake, they turned to us.

If you or a loved one faces criminal charges, are frightened, confused, and don't know where to turn, trust your future to experienced attorneys with a proven record of success. If you are as serious about your case as we are, please contacts us immediately.
