Our Practice Areas

Our primary practice area is personal injury law, a field that takes up about half of our legal practice. We help victims of car accidents; motorcycle crashes; commercial truck collisions; slips, trips, and falls; nursing home abuse; and medical malpractice recover the compensation they deserve. Additionally, we help individuals and families who have been the victim of criminal activity.

As former defense attorneys, we can fight strategically for your rights. We know what limits we can push, what tactics insurance companies will try, and how to recover maximum compensation on your behalf.

Our other practice areas include:

  • Criminal defense – our former prosecutors can help individuals accused of drug crimes, burglary, computer crimes, DWI, homicide, rape, or manslaughter.
  • Family lawwe can help you through changes to your family, including divorce, child custody, and child support.
  • Civil litigationwhether you’re starting a business or facing a lawsuit, we can help you navigate civil law and take the appropriate next steps.

No matter what we’re helping you with, we care about your future. With our compassion, skill, and experience, you get the legal counsel you deserve.
