Attorney Profile


Our attorneys take personal attention seriously. Unlike many law firms or attorneys, all substantive client contact is directly with our attorneys and all legal documents are drafted by our lawyers as opposed to paralegals or secretaries. In addition, a lawyer is available to answer your calls at most times of day including weekends.
