Criminal defense, including DUI/DWI and other traffic offenses
When you or a loved one faces criminal charges, it's important to secure representation from an attorney as quickly as possible. With years of experience handling a wide variety of criminal defense matters, I will help you build a strong criminal defense to mitigate the consequences of the charges while pursuing an acquittal should your case go to trial.
Child custody and support
The most contentious aspects of any divorce involving children are often child custody and child support proceedings and negotiations. Although many parents are willing to compromise on who will keep the family home or car, few are willing to compromise the integrity of their parent-child relationship.
Divorce and family law
As your attorney I will work closely with you throughout your divorce or other family law proceedings. I will listen as you describe your situation, offer advice when you ask questions and ultimately help you pursue a strategy focused on achieving your goals.
Personal Injury including car and other motor vehicle accidents
Years ago, it was common for personal injury cases to go to trial. Today, insurance companies and plaintiffs alike often opt to resolve their cases through mediated settlements. As an experienced trial attorney, I understand the appeal of settling a case quickly, but there is more to consider than just securing compensation quickly.
