Our preferred method of communication is by E-mail. This is simply because we are often in court, out of the office. We should be able to reply within a 24 hour cycle. Thank you for your patience. However, you can give us a telephone call as well.

For an online traffic safety education course, check out We are not endorsing this program, and there are other programs where you can attend a driver improvement class and get a certificate.

Lastly, please note that we are not retained for any legal matter until we have received our quoted retainer. Any matter of a sensitive or confidential nature should be discussed over the telephone. E mails are sometimes subject to cyber sleuths and other unsavory types. We cannot guarantee a particular result. What happens in court is often dependent on the particular venue, judge at that time, and many other factors, too numerous to list here. But we will do our best and certainly expect you will be satisfied.

General district courts, circuit courts, court of appeals, federal court, including related appellate courts;

ē  Donít ever talk to the police without first consulting a lawyer. That should be obvious, but it isnít.
