The agreements and contracts between landlords and tenants are some of the most complex that exist, and we can prevent future problems by making certain a lease fully protects your interests before you sign it.

Criminal Defense & Expungement

Life is complicated; anyone can need to defend against a wrongful accusation or the consequences of an error of judgment.

Please feel free to contact us whatever your situation so that we can provide exactly such a service.

We all make mistakes, but some mistakes made in the past can adversely affect our present and future. If you have made a mistake that resulted in a criminal conviction or admission of guilt, you may be eligible to have your record cleared or "expunged". We will give you an honest opinion on whether or not you qualify for expungement and-if you do-help you get a fresh start.
