There is a lot at stake if you are convicted — the results can mean jail time, large fines, losing your driver’s license and restitution to victims.

Corporate and contract law

We provide sound counsel on the many issues that arise when forming a business, merging or selling a business, making necessary changes during the life of a business, and drafting all the necessary contracts and documents. We also believe that problems can be prevented if strong contracts are drafted at the beginning to safeguard your interests. We advise you as to your rights and obligations under a contract, and we will aggressively represent you if any disputes arise.

Every family is different, presenting its own unique set of challenges. We tailor our services to meet your specific needs and give you a full understanding of the law, the possible outcomes of your case and the legal process ― whether your issue is divorce, child custody and visitation, child support, domestic violence, equitable distribution, modification, adoption, grandparent rights, prenuptial agreements or paternity matters. Our representation of many businesses gives us a unique ability to represent a business man or woman or a person of wealth in these matters.
