Firm Details

We are trial lawyers. In civil and criminal legal circles across the nation, we’ve built a solid reputation for establishing rapport with juries and obtaining favorable results for our clients.

We are a diverse legal team with years of courtroom experience, both state and federal. We are experienced in the preparation and presentation of a wide variety of cases, and we handle all appeals. We’re also a law firm with a distinct personality. We keep a positive, upbeat, and relaxed perspective, while remaining passionate about the law and driven to explore every angle of a legal position. We truly love what we do, so going the extra mile for our clients comes naturally.  

We believe there is no issue too complicated for a jury to understand. We often take a complex case or concept and transform it in a way that jurors can relate to — presenting all the relevant facts and evidence while keeping the jurors’ interest and attention. This philosophy is important for two reasons. First, juries sense that we believe in and trust them, and our ability to communicate with them increases the likelihood of success for our clients. Just as importantly, our opponents’ recognition of our successful record with juries greatly enhances the settlement potential of a case in a way that frequently makes a trial unnecessary and creates a more satisfying solution for our clients.  

Our practice is unusual in that it is both a civil and criminal practice. It is, however, based on our ability to create a positive connection with jurors whether they are hearing a civil or criminal case. Although our practice has increasingly been devoted to civil cases, we have steadfastly continued to represent people in criminal cases because we believe in and enjoy the work. For the last several years, our practice has been comprised of approximately 80 percent civil litigation and 20 percent criminal defense representation. We love the variety and believe that the eclectic nature of our trial practice actually reinforces our ability to be of help to a broad cross-section of individuals and companies.
