The Law Office

When you are faced with any type of legal matter, hiring an experienced attorney to represent you and guide you through the legal process is essential. We provide clients with personalized representation to meet the client’s needs with a strong emphasis on resolving matters in the most reasonable, rational and ethical manner possible.


We can guide the client to establish plan for the client’s business or eventual estate matters. Most individuals have been or will be entrusted with some type of property and can plan for their estate to efficiently pass according to the client’s wishes. 

In addition, the firm is founded on the Christian principle found in Mark 8:36 which says “For what does it profit a man to gain the whole world and forfeit his soul?” There are more important and lasting aspects of life than monetary gain and vengeance which are so often a primary part of the legal field and profession. Our goal is guide the client through the legal process with sound legal advice and also with advice based upon Christian principles in a manner that encourages the client to seek the most reasonable and ethical options available to them.
