Practice Areas

People Focused and Responsive

We are a full-service, law firm. We provide a wide range of legal counsel and representation, working collaboratively with clients, whether businesspeople or individuals, on their business and personal matters.

The increasingly sophisticated needs of our clients often require the legal advice of attorneys in many practice areas. Our attorneys are sufficiently skilled—and equally versatile—to allow us to assemble a team whose members offer just the right combination of knowledge and experience to handle every aspect of the most complex legal matters.

Each of these practice areas maintains a similar standard for providing legal advice that is as sound as it is supportive. Whether they’re handling a real estate transaction, negotiating the sale or purchase of a business, creating and implementing a multifaceted estate plan or litigating a case in federal or state courts, our attorneys bring the resources—and the responsiveness—that deliver practical and cost-effective solutions.
