Employment Law

Employment law involves advising and representing clients in matters related to employment and labor laws, including discrimination, harassment, retaliation, disputes, and wrongful termination. We work to protect the rights of employees and employers under state and federal law.

Trusts & Estate Planning

Trusts & estates planning involves advising and representing clients in matters related to all aspects of estate planning, including wills, living wills, medical directives, trusts, and probate. Our attorneys work to ensure their clients' assets are protected and distributed according to their wishes and tax implications are minimized.

Medical Malpractice

Medical malpractice law is a segment of the legal field that focuses on holding healthcare providers accountable when they fail to meet the standard of care, resulting in harm to the patient. This standard of care, expected in the medical community, varies depending on the patient's age, health condition, and other factors.

Elder Abuse

Elder abuse law refers to a set of statutes designed to protect seniors from various forms of harm, such as physical or emotional abuse, neglect, and financial exploitation. A valid claim typically involves evidence of harm or undue influence inflicted on an elderly individual, often by a caretaker or family member.
