OUR CLIENTS: Our clients are good people, not criminals and not people who need to be excluded, removed or restrained. Our clients need help passing through a system not designed for them and who deserve to have accusation of wrongful conduct put behind them. Our clients may be the victims of false or exaggerated complaints or may have other extenuating circumstances. In any circumstance, our clients deserve to have their dignity and lives remain intact.
OUR APPROACH: When new clients retain us, we give our clients immediate relief from trying to manage the legal problem on their own. We start with the basics. We answer our clients’ questions; the questions nobody else has answered. We step forward and take over all key communications with all the key players. We take immediate action to insulate our clients from harm, preserve essential timelines, assert critical rights, and take actions that will positively shape the course and strength of the legal case for both the short and the long term.

Defense of family and relationship offenses
Domestic violence prosecutions have designated courts, prosecutors and rules like immediate arrest and no contact orders. Those players and rules aren’t working for you. We know the unique practices and rules and we work for you.
A suspicion alone, a disciplinary event or a medical condition, can lead child abuse specialists, CPS and police to “protect the child” and separation from the accused parent. We protect the parent and reunify the family.
Judges rule on petitions for protection orders every day over the objections of unrepresented respondents. These orders are the foundation for future arrests. To have your voice heard, get experienced counsel.
Defense of Students and Young People
Youth are charged with adult crimes but in juvenile court with special prosecutors, rules and judges. The consequences can carry into college years and beyond especially with juvenile sex offenses. We defend and protect bright futures.
Students and young adults are just starting to establish themselves. A criminal charge can limit opportunities. We know the charges and challenges students and young adults most frequently face. We vigorously defend and protect bright futures.
Suspensions and expulsions happen daily at schools and universities. The timelines for appeal are fast. You do not need to have your education be at the mercy of the school or university. You have rights.
