Areas of Practice
Congress has established federal bankruptcy laws to give citizens a financial fresh start from burdensome debts. We have decades of experience helping individuals and businesses file Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcies.
Whether you are facing a divorce, dealing with child custody issues, or seeking to adopt a child, you can rely on us as your legal advocate to help the process go as smoothly as possible.
We can assist you in reorganizing the legal, ownership, operational, or other structures of your business or agribusiness to make it more profitable or better organized for present needs.
Estate planning is not just for wealthy or retired people. We can help you create a plan to ensure that your estate—which includes your car, home and other assets—are distributed according to your wishes.
Criminal defense + OWI
Criminal and OWI charges carry significant legal and financial consequences. We can help you navigate the system to reduce stress and achieve the best outcome for your individual situation.
social security disabilty
Many disability claimants think they can’t afford to hire an attorney, but a lawyer can only charge if you are approved for benefits—in which case, fees come out of back payments that Social Security will owe you. You can count on us to help you thoroughly prepare a disability case for a hearing.
