Criminal and Family Law Attorney


Although family law and criminal law are two very distinct areas of law, they frequently overlap, creating challenges for practitioners of both disciplines. When a family law case involves elements of criminal law, the case becomes exponentially more complicated for the family law practitioner. Often, the multitude of orders in the family courts and the criminal courts seem to conflict with one another. Cases may proceed simultaneously in different courts and through different attorneys, leading litigants to question which orders take precedence. Whether you are going through a divorce or face criminal charges, you want a dedicated lawyer who will listen to your concerns and be there to protect your rights every step of the way.


If you face a charge for a criminal offense, you undoubtedly have numerous concerns. You are likely worried about present concerns such as getting out of jail or having a bail bond set, and future concerns such as being convicted, going back to jail or losing your job. When an experienced trial attorney meets a skilled mediator, solutions become not possibilities, but realities.

If you have received a ticket for your charge, this may seem obvious, but in some cases the prosecuting attorney may change the charge, up the charge to something more serious, or add additional charges by the time you get to court. If you have been charged with a crime, you need to understand that you are facing severe consequences if convicted. These penalties will be enhanced if you have a prior criminal history, so you need to be sure that you work with someone who can explain the potential penalties that you are facing.


In some situations, these changes lead individuals to drift apart from one another. Couples who get divorce have to work out issues concerning child custody and the division of marital property. These are often very complicated and emotional cases, and it is important that you have a clear understanding of the options available to you at this time to make the decisions that are right for your future.


We begin with the idea that each case is going to trial. By preparing cases for trial, we work through each aspect upfront. This allows us to prepare motions and pretrial work early, so we can use it to negotiate with the prosecution. In some cases, the pretrial work reveals information that allows us to argue for the reduction or dismissal of the charges.
