LITIGATION

We regularly appear on behalf of our clients in trial and appellate litigation in state and federal courts.  Our experience in trying and appealing hundreds of cases makes us uniquely well suited to handle lawsuits involving complex legal issues in a variety of fields, including land use, zoning, local government, real estate, construction, and contract disputes. 

 

CRIMINAL LAW

We aggressively represent and defend individuals accused of crimes, ranging from DUI and drug possession, to complex fraud and murder.  Years of combined experience as former prosecutors and investigators, as well as trying cases in private practice, gives us the perspective necessary to grasp these high stakes.  We understand that the consequences of criminal charges or convictions are extremely high for our clients and their families, which is why we focus not only on advocating for our client's interests, but also on guiding them compassionately through this difficult process.  We also assist clients in resolving related matters, including campus disciplinary proceedings and workplace investigations.

TRUSTS & ESTATES

In our experience, far too many people believe that estate planning is something they don't need, when, in reality, every individual and family can benefit from planning for their future.  Our estate planning attorneys expertly guide individuals through this complex and emotional process.  By developing an in-depth understanding of each client's goals and desires, we can devise a bespoke and comprehensive set of planning instruments, personalized to their individual circumstances.  We also assist clients with the administration and resolution of estates, from navigating the probate process to resolving disputes.
