When it comes to issues of family law, success ultimately comes from a thorough understanding of law combined with attention to your personal circumstances and how decisions will affect your family in the long run.

It is this philosophy that chiefly informs my approach to family law. Throughout every family law case, I ensure that clients are fully "in the loop" as a case proceeds in mediation or litigation. I believe that it's only this hands-on collaboration that, when fused with my comprehensive understanding of family law, can arrive at outcomes that truly work for my clients and their loved ones. I am dedicated to each case on which I work and the wants and needs of my clients.

If you have questions about a family law issue, please contact my office for an appointment to discuss your case at 706-517-0196.

Auto Accidents, Tractor Trailer Accidents, Wrongful Death, Medical Malpractice

If you or a loved one has been injured in an auto accident, there are likely a number of questions on your mind:

  • How will I take care of property damage?
  • How will I deal with the insurance adjusters who are contacting me?
  • How will I deal with bills and lost wages as I recover?
  • How will I pay for medical expenses?

These questions can be confusing and overwhelming. There are always representatives from the insurance company who are involved and who are actively trying to minimize compensation paid to injured parties. These representatives and adjusters know the law. You need someone who will look out for your interests and who knows the law.

Having practiced personal injury law for over 20 years, I understand the confusing and complex web of issues that befall people as a result of just being involved in an accident. People go from their normal day-to-day lives to constantly having to deal with financial and medical concerns on a regular basis. Because I understand the difficulty and pain that can come with car accidents, I am here to aggressively advocate and do what is right in the interest of the injured.

It's important to point out that you should never give a statement to an insurance adjuster. Before you talk to them, talk to me.

As with every personal injury case, I work exclusively on contingency and never collect any attorney fees unless I am able to obtain compensation for my clients

If you've been charged, there's no such thing as a "small" crime. It can be a serious matter that may have effects, sometimes substantial, on your finances, freedom, criminal record and even your livelihood. When you need to enter into criminal defense, you need an attorney who believes that when you are on trial, they are on trial.

This is precisely how I view my criminal practice. I understand that beyond the immediate concerns of finance and livelihood, humiliation can enter the picture. I believe that part of what I do is a calling - to help people see through the fog of emotion in order to deal with the task at hand, which is defeating or minimizing the accusation.

Like with all of my practice areas, I am able to undertake extensive discovery and prepare each case for trial. It is this aggressive advocacy that has resulted in diminished charges or outright acquittals for many of my clients. I am here to look at every aspect of your case and to make sure that your rights are protected at every stage and to aggressively attack the prosecution's case.

To discuss any aspect of a criminal defense case, please call my office to schedule an appointment at 706-517-0196.
