How We Do It

Our Approach To Law

We specialize in dealing with the interplay between civil and criminal law in all of its facets. Having handled both criminal and civil cases, we approach our cases utilizing skills from both areas of practice. In terms of civil litigation, we understand the importance of thorough investigatory practices and trial preparation. With respect to criminal defence, our lawyers have extensive experience in providing skilled trial advocacy for accused persons.


Firsthand Perspectives – An Advantage In Crafting Solid Defence Strategies

Extensive legal knowledge and experience form the foundation of our practice. But our effectiveness is also backed by complementary insight into other areas.

Our senior lawyer, Howard C. Cohen, is also a gun owner, firearms expert and a martial artist with a black belt in karate. He has personal, firsthand understanding of how firearms operate, the physical aspect of combat and the psychology behind self-defence.

By leveraging such insight, we are able to present a comprehensive, compelling defence before judge and jury. It’s one way that we deliver greater value and pursue optimal results to our clients.
