My practice identifies and seeks to help those in need. If you are seeking our services you have either been injured, arrested, or suffered a constitutional violation at the hands of law enforcement. We seek to empower our clients by finding justice and positive outcomes and we do so many times against the odds. As our firm web page states, "We strive to build lasting relationships with clients." We want to empower our clients to restart their lives by removing barriers to success. Barriers can come in the form of injuries, false or trumped up allegations of misconduct, or at the hands of those thought to protect and serve. In my mind, the ultimate goal of legal representation in our chosen fields of concentration is to heal the person. Healing can take many shapes and forms. We are creative and caring. We hope to hear from you.
The team photo here shows Team Maree. I believe community service is an important component of a great life. Each year with my family members and friends, we ride to support MS fundraising to eliminate this prevalent disease which my mother suffers from. Being engaged with our community to see positive change is a permanent aspiration of our firm.
Thus, our law firm believes in pro bono work for the less fortunate. We are called to serve those who are incarcerated literally or in a figurative sense. We believe anyone can restart their life and we strive to support that noble endeavor.
We provide free legal support to the Timothy Initiative, a men's work and Bible study recovery group; I Matter Too that nurtures abused and orphaned children in our foster care system tutoring them and teaching them the love of Christ. Please see my resume on our web page for further details about places I have served. Perhaps you will be motivated to serve or can share your own story of service.
In conclusion, we know that If you need help and are ready to help yourself as well, then we will work well together.
