Quality Representation & Affordable Rates

We provide clients cost-effective access to the same quality representation provided by major law firms at far greater cost. We are technologically savvy, know the law, and have a passion for defending our clients’ rights. Those who come to us for assistance can be confident in our abilities, experience, and record of positive results.

In addition to representing our clients at trial or on appeal, we have done some of our best work by building a strong position before a criminal or civil case erupts. We understand that even the threat of being charged with a crime or sued can permanently damage an individual, a business, or an organization. We work hard to protect you from the harm of being publicly implicated in wrongdoing.

Our Approach

Regardless of a firm’s size, success in litigation ultimately depends on one or two dedicated, savvy lawyers mastering the facts of a client’s situation and the governing law. We know our way around the federal and state courts, command respect from judges and prosecutors, and have a reputation among our peers for doing quality pretrial, trial and post-trial work in vigorously protecting our clients’ interests.

We work efficiently, intelligently, and strategically to achieve our clients’ objectives. We remain accessible and attentive to all of our clients, and we practice law with integrity, intensity, imagination, enthusiasm, energy, and a commitment to hard work.

Our Experience

Our attorneys have served as lead or co-counsel in thousands of criminal and civil cases in both federal and state courts.

In criminal matters, our reputation as top-rated trial attorneys, who hold the government to its burden of proving charges beyond a reasonable doubt, enables us to persuade investigating authorities not to prosecute. For clients who have been formally charged, we have successfully litigated cases prior to trial resulting in either dismissal by motion or non-custodial diversionary programs. The firm enlists top-notch investigators and experts, as appropriate, to provide clients a forceful defense against the enormous resources of prosecuting agencies.

In civil cases, while many matters are resolved by settlement, our trial-oriented approach provides our clients with an efficient and results-oriented pre-trial litigation strategy concentrated on what it would take to win at trial. A favorable pre-trial settlement often results from our preparation to try every case if necessary. As in criminal matters, our civil clients benefit from our trial-ready reputation.
