If you pick another attorney, you’ve made a mistake!

A little over a year ago i was arrested for OWI 1st offence. I’ve never been arrested before and was pretty worked up about the whole situation, not knowing how all of this worked. I called multiple attorneys before speaking with Robert and his team. The others I spoke with treated me as a criminal and like another case they didn’t have time for. You won’t get that with Robert and Mckayla, they are willing to go the extra mile to help you any way they can! As soon as you walk into his office you are treated with kindness […]

A Trial Lawyer’s Reading List

Law school is full of reading.  Read, take notes, remember, regurgitate … dump.  That is the process for the three years of law school.  Law related texts are not what anyone would characterize as engaging or enjoyable reads.  To be blunt, law school reading sucks. After a full three years of reading in law school, a prospective lawyer earns the privilege of spending a full summer reading ad-nausea, preparing to take the crucible of the legal field – the dreaded bar exam.  Passing the bar exam does nothing more than earn you a lifetime of reading.  The practice of law, […]
