State and Federal Criminal Law
My primary reason for my becoming an attorney was to practice in the area of criminal defense. I have had numerous successful jury trials defending my clients accused of crimes. I have handled all types of criminal cases from violence, drug cases, criminal sexual conduct, OUIL cases, down to simple traffic cases.
I have over sixteen years of experience in the State and Federal trial courts. Major cases include Michiana Abortion Clinic vs. Northeast Indiana Operation Rescue, involving claims of Racketeering RICO, and violations of the Klu Klux Klan Act. Other cases in Federal Court, Conspiracy to Distribute Narcotics, Maintaining a Crack House, Interstate Trafficking and Sales of Narcotics, Interstate Transport of Stolen Goods, etc. Routinely handle criminal and traffic matters in Michigan counties of Berrien, Cass, Van Buren, Kalamazoo, and Allegan, in Indiana counties of St. Joseph, Elkhart, LaPorte, Porter, Lake, Marshall, and LaGrange. Also, in Illinois, the County of Cook or local suburban counties.
"We are a debt relief agency in the business of filing cases under the United States Bankruptcy Code."
I get great satisfaction in helping people with financial problems. I primarily do Chapter 7 Bankruptcy cases for individuals and couples. I sometimes handle Chapter 13 and business Chapter 11 cases. I think that the American consumer is being duped by the credit card industry. Some people are just in way over their heads with debt. I'll give you comprehensive advice, and if warranted, file your case following all the new Bankruptcy Reform Act laws.
Most of my new bankruptcy cases come from referrals from past satisfied clients.
Divorce and Family Law
I help people get through the sometimes tough process of divorce and custody. I feel most cases of divorce should settle fairly easily on equitable terms.
I believe it is not in the children's best interest for long and drawn out legal fights between the parties. Usually those matters can be settled but there are times when a tough approach is called for.
I can battle with any of the possible lawyers your spouse chooses. Some family lawyers have an aggressive (expensive) style of running up the bill with nonsense. I can counter that with a successful defensive strategy that keeps that to a minimum. I believe that for the most part the attitude, appearance and manner of the client is what the court is interested in, not the attorney.
If custody or parenting time is an issue, I will have you prepared to put your best foot forward to the friend of the court or Judge in your case.
I do not handle family law matters in Indiana or Illinois.
Personal Injury, Real Estate, Probate, Wills, Living Wills, Power of Attorney, etc.
I also handle a variety of other legal matters. If in doubt ask if it is something I do not specialize in then I might be able to refer you to someone that does.
