Practice Areas

Adoption

 

Whether you are considering adopting a child, in need of a stable home and caring parents for your child, a relative seeking to adopt the child of another family member, or a step parent seeking to make your family complete by making it “official” through the adoption process, I am dedicated to working with my clients to see their child finds the right place to call home.

Auto Accidents

 

Motor vehicle accident law refers to a hybrid of traffic law and personal injury law. The law involves the determination of fault in a traffic collision and is determined almost exclusively on laws of the state where the accident occurred. In these cases, I can help you by reviewing documents related to the accident and gathering evidence.

Big Truck Accidents

 

Big trucks can encompass a wide range of vehicles that include: garbage trucks, tow trucks, construction vehicles, box trucks, and of course 18-wheelers. Accidents involving these trucks can happen when a driver, company or maintenance service acts negligently, there's inclement weather, heavy traffic, the truck is overloaded or mechanical defects. When these accidents occur, it is important that certain steps are taken and your rights are protected.

Business Formation

 

Businesses, whether they be corporations, limited liability companies, general or limited partnerships, business trusts, or sole proprietorships, as well as their shareholder, partner, and member owners, require skillful legal representation throughout their life cycles. Whether you are looking to form your business, to dissolution or liquidate, or at any stage in between, let me assist you in meeting all the legal needs of your business.​

Civil Litigation

 

Civil litigation occurs when two or more parties become involved in a legal disagreement that involves seeking money or action but does not involve criminal accusations. These cases can sometimes head to trial, giving a judge the chance to decide the outcome. While every civil law case is unique, each makes its' way through a series of steps. If you are interested in pursuing a civil litigation against another person, give me a call and I can help you determine whether or not you have a solid case, and what the best process is to start building that case.

Criminal Defense

 

An experienced lawyer can mean all the difference between a successful or unsuccessful outcome and the possible penalties involved can have a massive impact on a business or an individual. In these cases, my clients appreciate my understanding and knowledge of the system to ensure that their rights are represented and protected to the highest possible degree. I am able to advise and guide them through every aspect of the criminal justice system, from how to initially respond to a criminal investigation right through to appealing a decision.

Divorce

 

In divorce, my main responsibility as a lawyer is to help advise with the division of assets and debt among spouses. If there are children involved, I would also assist with setting the terms for child custody and child support. Along with these tasks, there is thorough research that is required in order to gather supporting evidence in each case.

 

DUI/DWI

 

As a lawyers who practices in the area of DUI/DWI Defense I represent citizens who are charged in the criminal justice system with violating Driving Under the Influence or Driving While Impaired statutes. In many cases I may be able to identify legal and factual defenses that can help minimize or avoid the severe penalties associated with a DUI/DWI conviction. 

 

Family Law

 

Family law is the legal practice area that focuses on issues involving family relationships, such as adoption, divorce, and child custody, among others. As an attorney practicing family law, I can represent clients in family court proceedings or in related negotiations and can also draft important legal documents such as court petitions or property agreements.

 

 

Medical Malpractice

 

Negligence due to medical malpractice can occur in almost any environment where you receive treatment. This can include cases against doctors, nurses, or other health care providers. So, to discover, prove and recover for personal injuries and even wrongful death caused by medical malpractice it requires a knowledgeable lawyer of medical malpractice legal profession.

 

Personal Injury

 

Personal Injury law involves individuals and their families who have been seriously injured or killed as a result of the negligence, recklessness, or carelessness of others. Personal injuries can not only cause physical pain, but also emotional and even financial hardship through loss of work, medical bills, and the stress placed upon families and loved ones. That's where I come in, to help ease some of the stress and work with the family to get what they need and deserve. 

Probate Matters

 

As a probate lawyer I can help family members settle debts and distribute assets after someone has passed, with or without a will.​​ When advising here are some examples of things I can help with:

  • Collecting & managing life insurance proceeds

  • Getting the decedent's property appraised

  • Finding & securing all of the decedent's assets

  • Advising on how to pay the decedent's bills & settle debt

  • Preparing/filing documents as required by a probate court

  • Managing the estate's checkbook

  • Determining whether any estate taxes are owed

Wills

 

The practice area of wills involves the drafting of living wills, estate planning, trusts, powers of attorney, and other documents to facilitate the transfer and management of property after death. With wills there are no cookie-cutter solutions with regard to estate planning or probate and each case is as individual as those involved. But with a trusted and experienced attorney it can make all the difference.
