What we do not do:
There are some areas of law in which we do not undertake any representation at the trial or administrative level. These include: family law (adoptions, divorce, name changes, etc.); personal injury; tax (State and federal income taxation, as well as all other areas of State and federal taxation); patent application & prosecution; and local zoning and land use.
We can and do represent clients in appeals from many of the above types of cases. Once your trial lawyer has filed a notice of appeal at the trial level, we are happy to consult with you regarding a possible appeal.
