About Me

     We have over 30 years of experience in handling personal injury claims, including auto accidents, motorcycle accidents, wrongful death, slip and fall, and other cases involving bodily injury.  We handle all work-related injury claims and have considerable experience in maximizing the amount of compensation that you receive through the workers' compensation system.  Our practice also branches into the areas of family law, including adoptions, child custody, and dissolutions of marriage, as well as criminal defense.  Rates are reasonable and payment plans are often allowed.  No charge for consultations.  We can arrange weekend appointments if needed.
