I believe the best lawyer for you is almost always the one who will care the most about you and solving your problems. He will take the time to carefully listen to you, understand your situation, and give you the best advice on how to deal with it. He’ll give you the time you need to get to know him so you can ask questions and fairly judge if you want him to help or represent you.

Based in Decatur, Illinois and serving clients throughout Central Illinois, I am a different kind of lawyer. I love value billing and flat fee arrangements. I embrace technology and use it to make my practice more effective. I worry about my clients, not their fees. I offer a valuable service to my clients, but I don't act like I'm better because of it. My practice focuses on car accidents, divorce, criminal defense, and estate planning. Can't make it to the office? No worries—I make housecalls if you need it.

And yes, I know my catchphrase/tagline is cheesy—that's what makes it fun.

Need a lawyer?

The Justia Lawyer Directory is a listing of lawyers, legal aid organizations, and pro bono legal service organizations. Whether you were injured, are accused of a crime, or are merely engaging in everyday affairs that affect your legal rights or property, an attorney can help you resolve problems or prevent new ones from arising.

Here are just a few situations where you might want to seek the advice of an attorney:

  • You were injured in a car or truck accident
  • You have been arrested and charged with a crime, such as DUI or shoplifting
  • You are considering separating from your spouse
  • You have been subjected to harassment or other discrimination at work

Use Justia to research and compare attorneys so that you can make an informed decision when you hire your counsel.

It is important to research an attorney before hiring him or her. Be sure to evaluate an attorney's experience (types of cases handled, prior results obtained, etc.). Although prior results are not indicative of the likelihood of success in your case, they can help you make an informed decision.

Also worth serious consideration is the attorney's location, particularly if you will be traveling to visit him or her for consultations.

Finally, research an attorney to see whether he or she has ever been subject to discipline. Although disciplinary actions do not necessarily impact the attorney's competence to handle your case, they may affect your decision whether to hire.
