We understand that when clients walk through our doors, they are scared and intimidated. Many of them have no prior criminal record and don't know what to expect. Many of our clients face serious consequences because of the accusation. The stakes are especially high for those with professional licensure issues such as:
- doctors, nurses, and other healthcare professionals;
- lawyers and students in law school;
- public and private school teachers and other certified educators;
- members of the military; and
- law enforcement officers at the local, state, or national level.
We also represent clients with a special security clearance or who carry a concealed firearm. For those charged with DUI and other criminal traffic offenses, we are experienced in representing commercial drivers and CDL holders.
No matter the nature of the charge or the potential consequences, we know and understand that each and every case is important and life-changing to you. We are here to help you navigate the court system in order to achieve the best result possible for you and your individual situation.

- civil asset forfeiture proceedings;
