We like to let our work speak for itself, so we’ve provided a few examples of successful cases below. They focus primarily on criminal defense, and that’s for two reasons. First, to avoid any cases (such as DHS-deprived) we cannot legally share for privacy reasons. Second, criminal defense cases are generally the simplest to explain. Our complete results include over 60 combined years of criminal defense, DHS-deprived, family law, personal injury and workers’ comp cases.
