Our Practice

Dependency Law

Whether facing a dependency or a termination of parental rights petition, we know that the only thing scarier than facing criminal charges is the prospect of losing your child. With so much at stake, it’s important to have someone in your corner to help you navigate the system.

Family Law

When dealing with the uniquely emotionally charged and legally complex issues of family law, you need an attorney who’s competent and aggressive, but at the same time, compassionate.

Personal Injury Litigation

Being involved in a life-changing accident can be a very stressful and overwhelming event. Outside of recovery, individuals are faced with paperwork, demands and pressure from insurance to settle. 



Civil Rights Litigation

When you have been the victim of a civil rights violation, it is important to act quickly in your pursuit of justice. If you believe that you and/or your child’s rights have been violated, call us today to discuss how to best enforce your constitutional rights.

Family Mediation
