We are a boutique personalized law firm with an emphasis on landlord-tenant law.


Matters Prosecuted

“Discourage litigation. Persuade your neighbors to compromise whenever you can. Point out to them how the nominal winner is often a real loser in fees, expenses, and waste of time. As a peacemaker the lawyer has a superior opportunity of being a good man.”

Abraham Lincoln

We believe in this philosophy and encourage our clients to follow it. But if that approach proves unsuccessful, we are here to assist you. We strive to be effective, aggressive, and to take the worry and stress off your shoulders and place it onto ours.
