Our Lawyers

Tough, experienced trial lawyers ready to fight back to protect our clients.

Our firm exists to help people successfully navigate serious legal challenges. For over 20 years, we have defended people charged with serious crimes, protected whistleblowers who have reported corporate fraud, and helped families rebuild their lives after serious injuries.

The people who work at this firm come from different backgrounds, but we all share four core principals that guide our work every day:

  1. We’re 100% honest – We always tell the truth – to our clients, opposing counsel, judges, everyone.
  2. We finish the case – We don’t quit on our clients. We keep working until we have done everything we can do to finish the case successfully.
  3. We work from the heart – We treat people like we would want to be treated, and we give each client the personal attention they deserve. There are no “paycheck lawyers” here.
  4. We think outside the box – Our creativity and experience help us win cases that seem impossible. We don’t mind being different from other firms, or trying new strategies when the old ones don’t work.
