Our Commercial Litigation & Criminal Defense Legal Services

Our firm is a commercial litigation law firm focusing much of its practice on criminal defense as well as civil litigation. Our representation in both of our general practice areas is extensive and backed by a strong track record of successful results. These are outcomes secured for our clients both inside and outside of state and federal courts. 

In criminal defense, we represent clients who have been accused, arrested, and charged with offenses ranging from misdemeanors to violent crime felonies. Being accused of a crime can be a life-altering event that can be overwhelming and enormously stressful. When facing the criminal justice system, your best move is to retain the services of a proven defender whom you can trust to put the diligence and care into your defense that you need.  Our criminal defense lawyers are known for their proficiency and skill in aggressively seeking optimum results.

In commercial litigation, our knowledge, insight, and legal skills are comprehensive. We represent clients in civil matters relating to title insurance defense, buyer/builder litigation, commercial and residential construction disputes, surety bond claims, breach of contract, boundary line issues, sale and partition lawsuits, quiet title lawsuits, materialman’s liens, mechanics’ lien litigation, other real estate litigation, entertainment law, and more. 

We provide legal assistance in negotiating favorable settlements, mediation, arbitration, and taking cases to civil court to ensure the protection of your rights and best interests. All civil litigation matters can be enormously complex and jeopardize the future of your business, project, or institution. Our accomplished team can guide you through the civil court system in search of desired results.
