Family Practice  |  Personal Injury  |  Administrative Law

We help you find your way through the fog of legal issues.

Good advocacy, whether in negotiation or in litigation, is based on good judgment.

We strive at all times to properly assess the best approach for each client through open and thoughtful communication as well as straightforward and strategic legal analysis. The goal is to provide value for our clients in a cost-efficient and solution-oriented manner.


We customize our approach to each client’s unique needs.

We recognize that lawyers who aggressively litigate every dispute often do a disservice for their clients. Trials are expensive and often leave family relationships irreparably and unnecessarily tattered.
For many clients, competent, skillful and creative negotiation is the most effective and inexpensive manner of resolving disputes and moving on to a new phase in life.
