Six Decades Of Outstanding Legal Counsel

A full-service law firm for your business and personal challenges.

Workers’ Compensation

We represent employees in every industry and occupation: factory and warehouse workers, tradesmen, truck drivers, law enforcement and corrections offices, health care workers, teachers and more.

Criminal Defense

We believe the key to successful representation is preparation – total preparation – for any criminal matter, whether it is a simple violation of the Motor Vehicle Code or a major felony.

Business and Real Estate

Early legal counseling can help business owners avoid many common pitfalls. We stress the importance of avoiding business disputes through the consultation and planning process.

Social Security Disability

If you are under the age of 65 and no longer able to work due to a physical or mental disability, you and your dependents may be entitled to monthly Social Security benefits and medical benefits.

Personal Injury

We have extensive experience handling personal injury cases on behalf of accident victims and their families. We work closely with our clients to ensure they receive top dollar.

Employment Law

Employment discrimination law is a complex area of practice. If you suspect you have been discriminated against by your employer, it is important to consult an attorney to insure your rights are protected.

Estate Planning & Probate

The estate planning process involves weighing various personal and financial decisions and creating legal arrangements to carry out those decisions. We can help by offering a wide range of personal services.
