Personal Injury

When contacted by insurance companies after an accident, the worst thing you can do is accept their first offer. The best way to get the money you need for the medical bills you will have to pay and to cover your lost wages is to hire an experienced personal injury attorney.

Real Estate

Purchasing a home or commercial building is a big investment.

We craft real estate contracts putting you in control of the situation, whether you’re buying or selling.

Criminal Law

When you or a loved one runs into trouble with the law, be sure to hire a criminal law attorney immediately. Failure to get legal representation early in the process can have serious repercussions. Do not gamble with your future. Have our criminal lawyers defend your rights.

We practice the following types of criminal law:

  • Drunk Driving
