Areas of Practice

Personal Injury

It can be difficult to think about filing an insurance claim in the wake of an injurious accident, but the sooner you do so, the better chance you have of receiving due compensation for your injuries. In order for a claim to have merit, a victim must demonstrate that another person or party’s carelessness or recklessness contributed to the likelihood of an accident occurring. We can help you collect evidence and prepare the documentation necessary to present your case in the best possible light. Whether your injuries were the result of a vehicle accident, medical malpractice, or a slip and fall incident, we urge you to speak with a skilled California personal injury attorney as soon as possible. We can even help survivors recover damages in a wrongful death suit if they have lost a family member due to another individual’s negligence or misconduct. Get in touch with us today if you are considering filing a personal injury claim.

Criminal Defense

Hiring an aggressive California criminal defense attorney to represent you following an arrest for a felony or other crime is the best way to secure your rights and your liberty. We offer robust criminal defense for individuals charged with domestic violence, traffic violations, drug crimes, or drunk driving as well as for juveniles accused of delinquent acts. Unlike many other firms, we are willing to represent defendants in federal cases. We are also willing to go to trial on behalf of our clients if necessary. However, if we believe a plea bargain is in your best interest, we’ll let you know. The final decision about how to proceed with your case is yours alone, but whatever option you choose, we'll strive to achieve a favorable outcome for you. Get help understanding your rights and your legal options after an arrest by speaking to a seasoned California criminal defense lawyer today.

Bankruptcy

Filing for bankruptcy is a big step, but sometimes it’s the only way for a family to get a handle on their financial situation. Declaring Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy will stop harassing calls from creditors and also halt any foreclosure proceedings to which your home is being subjected. You and your family will be able to either work out a reasonable repayment plan to honor your obligations to creditors or be permitted to sell your assets in order to resolve debts. Either way, you can expect that most of your dischargeable debt will be erased and that you and your family can look forward to a brighter financial future. Speak to a dedicated California bankruptcy attorney today to find out if filing for Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 can help you escape the vicious cycle of debt.

Employment Law

Employment law involves many different legal issues related to the workplace including discrimination, wrongful termination, worker’s compensation insurance claims, and whistleblower protection. Regardless of what your employer may have told you, you have the right to seek the counsel of a dedicated employment law attorney if you have questions about your rights or your options as an employee. We can help you with filing a workers’ compensation claim after a workplace accident and make sure that you are treated fairly by the insurance companies with whom you are dealing with. Additionally, if you believe you were unjustly fired or a target of discrimination, we can assist you in pursuing civil litigation against those responsible.

Immigration Law

Many immigrants who come to the United States in search of a better life may not understand what legal options they have available to them when it comes to ensuring that they can stay here. It’s sufficient to have a visa in order to enter the United States legally, but in order to remain in this country, an individual will eventually need to acquire a green card. By enlisting the aid of an experienced immigration attorney, you can get affordable, effective assistance in applying for a visa, for a green card, or with other matters related to your legal status as an immigrant or resident alien. Speak to a knowledgeable California immigration attorney today to find out how.
