What I DO

I do legal work in the areas of civil, criminal, and family law. My practice operates in three basic contexts:

 

  • litigating contested issues to resolution via settlement, mediation, or trial;

  • working with companies and their decision-makers to start, grow, and/or protect their business; and

  • representing and asssisting individual clients with a variety of personal legal needs.  

Sometimes legal issues can be resolved by agreement. Other times they can't. When it comes time to go to court, I represent clients in several areas:

 

CIVIL CASES

Recovering financial compensation for claims involving issues such as:

  • Personal Injury

  • Negligence

  • Contract / Business Disputes

  • DWI / Theft / Asssault

  • Possession of a Controlled Substance ​/ Drug Paraphernalia

  • Revocation of Probation

FAMILY LAW

Working for reasonable outcomes in situations involving:

  • Divorce

  • Child Support

  • Custody / Visitation
