Client Reviews

“I’m glad I hired them. They made me feel like more than a client, family. They put in a great effort and put their best foot forward. I would recommend them to anyone. A 1 service.”


5 Star Review


“Kim has a passion for her job like no other. She is not your run of the mill lawyer that just takes your money and gets you the simplest plea. In my particular case I was mentally done dealing with it and she advised me to keep fighting and she was right. She got the charge dismissed. It’s hard to put faith into a lawyer but she had my life in her hands and never once took that for granted. I will always be grateful that I followed her advise and put my trust in her. I would recommend her as an attorney over anyone.”

Facing criminal charges and being convicted can have serious consequences on your life and your future. One of those consequences is a criminal record that can follow you for the rest of your life. That is why you need a defense attorney dedicated to providing aggressive representation. Our criminal defense lawyers are not afraid to take cases to court, and we will do everything we can to protect your rights.
