Personal Injury / Wrongful Death
Personal injury is the name given to the area of law that covers any wrong or damage done to another person, his property, rights, or reputation. A personal injury can happen almost anywhere: at work, while driving home, because of a defective product, because of a mistake during medical treatment, or because you slipped and fell on a wet floor. The personal injury can be physical or psychological but, to be considered actionable, it must occur due to the negligence or unreasonably unsafe / careless actions of your employer, a manufacturer, your doctor, landlord, or some other person or organization who owes you a duty of ordinary care. Examples of personal injury law causes of action include professional malpractice, wrongful death, products liability, automobile negligence and trespass. read more>

Criminal Law / White Collar Defense
Criminal Law is the name given to the area of law that governs an individual’s relationship to the state and federal government. It includes various rules that define conduct which is prohibited by the state and federal government because it is held to threaten the welfare of the public. Some examples of criminal offenses are bribery, conspiracy, money laundering, DUI, and insurance fraud. The term “criminal law” also encompasses the rights of an accused and the criminal process, including arrest, arraignment, grand juries, pleas, discovery, pretrial hearings, trials, jury selection, evidence, motions, and posttrial remedies.
