Summary

Get your case dismissed with a motion or because the government is unable to proceed. On a recent dismissal the Judge said she had not dismissed a case in 20 years but she was dismissing mine.

99%+ client satisfaction. All of our clients give us positive reviews.

Where I grew up in the mountainous Redwoods people prided themselves on their common sense. Common sense is not something frequently associated with the law. But there is a lot of common sense behind the ideas of the law. Re-introducing common sense to the case is just one of the many ways I can get a great result for you.

Scored 99.9% on LSAT (Law School Admissions Test).
