Focused on clients in Montgomery County and surrounding counties, our office carefully and thoroughly prepares each case regardless of the severity of the case.

This preparation routinely uncovers important facts that could lead to a successful resolution of your case.

Our office takes pride in our reputation as thoughtful, skilled, and knowledgeable in the field of criminal defense, civil and litigation. Every court filing, appearance, and telephone call should be focused on meeting client goals and ensuring that the matter is resolved in a matter that benefits the client. This may involve exploring conventional methods for relief, such as a lawsuit, and unconventional methods, such as out of court mediation.
