"Where service is serious"

Specializing in Wrongful Deaths, Negligent Security, Car Accidents, DUI, and Criminal Law




Wrongful Deaths


We understand that the loss of a loved one is always difficult. It is especially troubling when it needlessly occurs as a result of someone's negligence or indifference.  During these trying times, we are here to help serve justice for the victim.

Negligent Security


Your safety is a priority. You deserve to be compensated if you are the victim of a criminal act on someone else's property.

Car Accidents


Regardless of the severity of your injury, we want to ensure that your rights are protected and that you receive the compensation you deserve.


DUI cases involve scientific evidence related to field sobriety testing, impairment from alcohol or drugs. Having an experienced attorney can make all the difference in how your case is resolved.

Criminal Law


Many people are wrongfully convicted everyday. We are here to ensure that you are represented zealously in the criminal justice system.
