Criminal defense (DUI, narcotics, possessions, sales, probation violation) makes up a large portion of the clients I represent. I have handled drive-by shootings, attempted murder, possession of controlled substances, aggrevated assaults, felony domestic violence, conspiracy, trafficking, and countless other felony charges.
If you have already been convicted of a felony, I may be able to either expunge your record or get your hunting rights back depending on your specific situation.
I also handle divorce, child custody, visitation and modification cases. In 2014, I was named one of the Top 10 Attorneys under 40 in family law. I focus on protecting the rights of dads in divorce. They have a right to see their kids and be a part of their lives. Dads also have as much right to custody of the children as moms.
Finally, no one should try and deal with an insurance company by themselves, and that is why I am here to help you get the treatment you need along with the compensation you deserve.
Contact me today to discuss your case.
