We pride ourselves in effective and aggressive DWI defense

As former prosecutors, we are uniquely situated to focus on criminal defense.

Everything from a divorce to adoption and child support enforcement.

We cater to emergency closings and have a staff ready to handle any closing in as little as 48 hours.

What Our Clients Say

Awesome response time with questions and inquiries. We used them once, hopefully we won't ever have to use them again, but if we need a lawyer for anything, it will be this firm. The front desk lady, Danielle, was super friendly and helpful. They took care of everything with no issues. Highly recommend.
