Areas of Practice

Corporate law

Our firm advises and represents companies and entrepreneurs with a broad range of business related services.  We advise business owners, entrepreneurs and managers on business law, start-up assistance including the formation of an entity and on the protection of a trademark or license agreement.  We also assist with the process of buying or selling a business.

wills, estate & probate law

Our firm has years of experience in drafting Wills and other estate planning instruments as well as guiding families through the trying and difficult process of winding up the affairs of deceased loved ones. Peace of mind comes through advanced planning to insure future generations are protected.

labor & employment law

Employment laws cover every phase of the employee-employer relationship: applying, hiring, training, working, paying, promoting, disciplining, and terminating the employer-employee relationship.  We assist employers, especially small to medium-sized companies, in keeping up with the ever-changing landscape of employment law.


The startup and small business marketplace is still a new and fierce frontier that requires legal advice from attorneys who are deeply entrenched in the particularities of venture financing. Our firm gives you an holistic approach, so your company can get the best competitive advantage.


The internet, software, and technology are so pervasive that we can’t remember having ever lived without them. They make our lives simpler, but behind the curtain are fluctuating challenges in protection and monetization—challenges that our firm stays two steps ahead of.

civil litigation

It is not uncommon for individuals or businesses to find themselves involved in a legal dispute with another party. Disputes of this nature, such as a breach of contract, typically fall under what is known as civil litigation which entails the use of courts or arbitrators for adjudication. Whether you are a plaintiff or defendant, hiring a qualified civil litigation attorney is crucial in achieving a successful outcome.


The law is more easily understood by few than many words.
