Our client service and support staff are dedicated to making the experience of retaining an attorney as smooth as possible and ensuring that no client ever has a question or concern that goes unanswered. It doesn't matter how good an attorney is if they don't pay close attention to the wants and needs of the client.

We are an equal-opportunity employer.
