Discover why our law firm is the best choice you will find anywhere, at the best price. If you or one of your loved ones is facing investigation, arrest, trial, or jail time in a state or federal court, you need an aggressive criminal defense plan. That includes having a criminal lawyer who is experienced and dedicated to seeking justice for people charged with a crime. Whether you've been accused of murder, assault, theft, burglary, robbery, rape, sexual assault, white collar crimes, tax offenses, driving while intoxicated or any type of drug-related offense you need your criminal defense lawyer at your side.


Thousands of people are unfairly convicted of crimes. Why? Because the system inherently puts you at a disadvantage. You are up against experienced, government-funded prosecutors who are hardened and eager to presume guilt, not innocence. Without deep pockets and the right connections, most people simply cannot mount an adequate defense.

We level the playing field.

We have assembled a team of top trial attorneys, legal experts, forensic experts, and investigators, including retired Superior Court Judge Kevin G. Callahan who is now serving the firm as of counsel. Our attorneys are accustomed to handling some of the most challenging cases possible and have achieved astonishing results. Peter R. Willis is recognized as a 6-time Super Lawyer, stemming from 2008-2013.
