Different Types of Problems, Need Different Types of Representation
Many people have little or no knowledge of what attorneys really do (outside of watching tv). “Can’t any lawyer represent me and my case?” No. Walk onto any construction site, you’ll find people knowledgeable about electrical, plumbing, carpentry, roofing and more. Did you know that in the legal world there are different areas of law and different lawyers who practice in those areas?
Whether it's an auto accident, a family custody case, or someone is facing criminal charges, you need, and have a right to have a voice speaking for you and your side. To explain. To represent you. That is your right. Like the construction site scenario, you want someone who is experienced at what they do, to work on your case. Each partner at this firm has an area of practice. The list below gives examples of some of the different areas this firm represents.
18 Wheeler Wrecks
Nursing Home Abuse
