Criminal Defense

Being charged with a crime can be an overwhelming experience. Our firm specializes in criminal law, and has the experience needed to win your case.

Federal Crimes

Allegations of federal crimes are very serious and should be treated as such. The FBI, DEA or CIA may be involved with investigating the incident.


Being charged with a DUI or DWI can be very scary, and also very serious. We will fight at all costs to have your case dismissed, reduced, or won at trial.

Sex Crimes

Being charged with a sexual crime requires an attorney who will deal with their client with compassion and without judgment.
