About me

We believe that everyone deserves quality legal representation at a fair price. That's why we have worked for 30 years to provide legal services to our community at affordable prices.


We will tell you if a bankruptcy or divorce is right for you, or if there are other avenues you should pursue. We will always put what is right for you before anything else. We are people who believe in doing what is right for others; we also just happen to be lawyers.
