The firm handles all types of business transactions from guiding clients on the formation of appropriate business entities to complex, partnership, shareholder and operating agreements. Much of the firm’s transactional work involves the purchase, sale and/or lease of commercial real estate and related commercial financing transactions.

Surrogate & Guardianship

Handling wills, trusts and other estate administration requires more than just legal knowledge, it requires compassion and empathy. We know these issues can hit home, and that’s why we promise to handle these cases with the utmost professionalism, discretion and kindness.

Personal Injury

Personal injury litigation includes extensive experience and success with automobile, and premises liability cases. We’ll get you the compensation you deserve, while providing honest and realistic expectations throughout the entire legal process.
