COMMITMENT TO INTEGRITY

About Our Law Firm

We believe that communication between client and attorney is essential to our representation. We always invite our clients to communicate with us, not only concerning their legal matters, but with questions, comments, and constructive criticism regarding any matter including the quality of our services and our bills. Frank and honest communication between client and attorney can only result in improved representation and stronger relations, and we encourage our clients to communicate with us.

We do not offer certain specialized services such as residential real estate, patent, trademark, copyright, criminal, collection, personal injury, or domestic relations representation. We do serve our clients by assisting them to secure quality legal representation in these areas. When needed, we work with specialists to help give our client the best representation possible.
