Criminal Defense

If you have been, or may be, charged with a crime, the best way to protect yourself and your rights is to contact an attorney immediately. Do not discuss your case with anyone without an attorney present. The shocking truth about today's criminal justice system is that it is extremely easy to find yourself on the wrong end of a criminal complaint or indictment. Quick and deliberate action early on can often reduce the amount of criminal exposure in time, anxiety and expense down the road. It may even prevent the entire experience of being dragged into the system.

Family Law

Parents who are contemplating divorce often have many concerns about who will have custody of the children and how the costs of raising them will be divided. These concerns are unique to family law, and require someone familiar with the process to guide you through successfully. We specialize in Family Law, providing expert advice and representation in the areas of divorce, child custody, adoption, and child support litigation.

Probate

Probate is the court-supervised legal procedure that determines the validity of your will. It affects some, but not all aspects of your estate. Non-probate assets, like a life insurance policy, are paid directly to the beneficiary. Upon your death, your will is filed with the probate court and its validity determined. All property, debts, and claims of the estate are inventoried and appraised. All valid claims of the estate are collected, and the remainder is distributed to beneficiaries according to the will.

Business Law

Business law is the law of business entities, such as corporations and partnerships. Selecting an entity is an important start to your business. You want limited liability protection. But if the organizational documents are not properly prepared and maintained, you may face personal liability. We can help you assess your needs and choose an appropriate entity, whether it be a sole proprietorship, limited liability company (LLC), limited liability partnership (LLP), or corporation.

Wills & Estates

Planning your estate is about caring for your loved ones, seeing they are provided for, and making sure your hard-earned property is distributed according to your wishes. We believe that too many young and middle-aged people die suddenly, often leaving behind minor children who need care and direction. Estate planning should be part of your overall financial plan, along with your children's college tuition and your retirement needs. If your circumstances change, it's easy and inexpensive to adjust your plan.
