Our legal team is rounded out by a dedicated group of lawyers with a variety of talents that benefit our clients.

Avoid Jail - On Low Bail or With No Bail!
Our trial lawyers vigorously represent people charged with sex crimes of all kinds, as well as a full spectrum of state or federal criminal charges. We defend people accused of domestic violence, murder, attempted murder, manslaughter, or assault, drug charges (including manufacturing and trafficking), drunk driving, juvenile offenses, theft, embezzlement, or fraud, and Internet or white-collar crimes.
Defense of Criminal Cases at all Stages
We represent clients with insight, compassion, and unyielding dedication at every stage of a criminal case: in pre-trial and plea negotiations, during bail and preliminary hearings or arraignments, at pre-trial motions, trial, and on appeal, including appeal of sex crime convictions. We also assist clients with post-convictions remedies, issues regarding sex offender registration, probation and parole violations, pre-arrest investigations, motions for expungement or sealing of records and deportation defense.
Protecting Constitutional Rights— Preserving Freedom and Property
Our years of experience have allowed us to develop a vast "tool box" of defense strategies for all types of criminal charges. We are dedicated to protecting the constitutional rights of the accused, and preserving people's freedom. We protect people's right to keep hard-earned property safe from illegal forfeitures and seizures.
