Criminal Law

Criminal Justice is a system of laws concerned with holding offenders accountable for committing crimes.  It strives to seek equal and fair justice; but often falls short.  A good defense attorney is critical if you find yourself facing a criminal charge.  Criminal justice triggers our most cherished right:  Our right to be free.  Since a conviction can result in the loss of one’s liberty, among other consequences, you need an attorney that is as worried about this reality as much as you are.  If you are being investigated, have been charged, or are facing a probation or parole violation, we never lose sight of your fears or goals.  Keeping you informed, providing you clear answers, and fighting for your constitutional rights is our duty.


Our legal system is a system that is fundamentally adversarial.  It is a system where there is a winner and a loser.  And often, even if you’ve “won,” you’ve still lost because of the time, energy, and money you’ve spent to get there.  Mediation is a 3000-year-old system that utilizes a trained neutral third party to help create a confidential resolution that you created and which carries the force of law, that you created.  We believe conflict resolution is the better path for most of our clients.  Lawyers don’t win when clients reach speedy resolutions: Clients do.  If you agree, we will always pursue an easier and less painful conflict resolution on your behalf.
