Shadow on Concrete Wall


Criminal Defense

We help clients accused of crimes.  We treat every case with sincerity and effort to reach the best possible outcome for our clients.  Often this will be a negotiated settlement, but we are ready to defend our clients at trial if necessary.


We help people in distributing the property of deceased loved ones.  This may be accomplished by administering the probate of a will in Court, or by informal administration.

Wills and Power of Attorneys

We help our clients make customized estate plans that meet their specific needs by drafting and interpreting of wills and powers of attorney for health care and finances.
