Compassionate Advocacy in Personal Injury Claims
When doctors, drivers, employers, and other individuals act negligently, they place innocent people at risk. If their negligence then causes an accident, then the lives of victims are often significantly and irrevocably changed. An automobile accident, truck accident, motorcycle accident, or construction accident can lead to catastrophic injuries that take away a victim's ability to do the things they love. A medical mistake can result in the wrongful death of a family member or financial provider. A work injury, caused by employer negligence, may hinder a victim's ability to support their family.
Essentially, the lives of victims and their families are turned upside down, all because someone else failed to act reasonably or responsibly. Their futures and finances may be unclear and frightening to consider, and they may struggle with the grief or healing process. Our attorney strives to ease their burdens with compassionate advocacy. We aggressively fight to hold negligent parties responsible and always pursue the most compensation possible to help secure a future because we believe that victims should never have to face the consequences of an injury alone.
Aggressive Criminal Defense Lawyer
Criminal charges can devastate a life in a different sort of way. The long-term implications can impact a person's ability to find employment or housing. A provider can be taken away from their family because they are jailed or imprisoned and sometimes for a crime they did not commit. The Constitution is meant to protect them from such injustices, ensuring they are considered innocent until proven guilty. Unfortunately, this is not always the case.
Our attorney knows that criminal cases are rarely what they seem. It is possible to commit a crime and not know it, and innocent people are convicted all too often. Those that act in self defense may be charged with assault and battery or a violent crime. A driver facing charges for a DUI may not have been over the legal limit but refused alcohol testing for reasons beyond guilt. Teens may face juvenile charges after committing a crime, despite not fully understanding the consequences of their actions.
We offer aggressive representation to those charged with criminal offenses. Committed to their futures and well-being, we uphold the laws and statutes of the Constitution and ensure they are treated fairly, no matter what their charges may be. We skillfully prepare every case for trial, giving defendants a distinct advantage in their case, and we will always pursue the most favorable outcome possible.
