Family Law spans many legal areas such as divorce, annulment, child custody, child visitation, child support, alimony, adoption, legal guardianship, state child protection, and domestic violence. These matters can be emotionally and financially draining.


Losing a loved one is a stressful, difficult, and exhausting time – not to mention a busy time. While dealing with the funeral and everything that comes with it, there is also the challenge of the probate process.


A Personal Injury lawsuit is a civil suit against a company or individual that has displayed negligence to your personal safety. This means that instead of seeking criminal charges against the defendant, you are seeking compensation for the harm that was done to you.


Have you been arrested or charged with a criminal offense? Whether it is a DUI or a more severe criminal matter, facing criminal charges can be daunting. Criminal offenses can have serious consequences, which is why you need an experienced attorney to defend your rights.


Filing for bankruptcy is a terrifying concept for a lot of people. No one wants to face the idea that filing for bankruptcy might be the best option for their financial situation. However, if the bills have begun to pile up and you know that you can’t pay them, then you probably have started to consider bankruptcy as an option.


Getting pulled over and getting a ticket can really put a dent in your day. The fines, the potential insurance premiums increase, and points on your driver’s license can make a ticket even worse.
