We provide service for all family law situations, plus help you with the personal challenges that often are part of rebuilding your life after divorce or any legal situation. In criminal defense, we handle it all, including Domestic Violence, DUI, Assault, and Sex crimes. We handle many cases where both family law and criminal charges are in play. We handle protection orders, whether it is getting one when you need it or defending against one when you are being falsely accused. If you are in a high conflict situation, we have been there before and we will get you through it.
Yes. You can meet with your attorney online, in person, or by phone. We will communicate with you in a way that works for you when you need it. We believe communication is critical to any successful relationship, including the one we have with our clients. We are discreet and know it is important your communications with us should be private and confidential. We always exercise discretion in communication.
Finding the right firm to help you with one of the most stressful situations in your life is more than a big decision – it is a huge one. We know this and take the trust you place in us very seriously. We are attorneys who will take action for you and guide you through this. Our firm was founded on the belief that there are solutions for every problem and the understanding that people are resilient and can overcome and even thrive after legal challenges. We help our clients write their comeback stories. You are more than a file name or number to us – you and your family matter. Your story matters. We believe that trust and communication are the foundation of successful outcomes in stressful times. We look forward to meeting you and learning where you have been and where we can help you go.
Many firms offer a consultation. Generally, a consultation will provide you with basic information about the law in a particular area and some comments on your situation. Our consultation goes beyond that basic information – this is a strategy session. We will discuss your cases, your feelings, your objectives, what may be possible or not possible, and possible strategies for your case. You will leave with a roadmap for your case should you decide to move forward. If you come ready to tell us your story and get information, we can help. Please read more about what to expect at your first meeting with us and possible issues to consider in advance here.
Paying for legal representation can be stressful and overwhelming in an already difficult time. You know you need help but might be scared how about how much it will cost you. We understand this and will work with you to understand what fees and costs you will have, how to plan for them, and how to help control costs in your case. Part of your initial meeting with us will include discussing finances. We want to know about you and what we can do to help. We will work with you if at all possible to make legal representation a reality for you. You can find more about our rates in advance of your consultation here.
Yes. There are protection orders, anti-harassment orders, restraining orders, and no contact orders. The differences between these orders can be confusing. The getting the correct order when you need it can change everything. Coming to see us will help you understand the differences and what is best for you. If you were served with a protection order, we can help you understand what you are facing and defend you. Understanding the impact these orders can have on your life, your parenting time, workplace, and elsewhere is critical.
