trusts and willS

There are so many facets to consider in estate planning.

From wills, trusts, powers of attorney, prenuptial agreements, and other valuable legal documents that express your future desires, Margaret will protect your best interests and can be trusted to help you successfully navigate this difficult terrain.

criminal misdemeanors

An arrest is not a conviction.

Many offenses, such as DUI/DWI require action on the part of your attorney within 14 days to preserve your rights. Contact Margaret today to discuss your case; she will work with you on a payment plan that will fit your budget so you truly can afford the defense you deserve.


We must all obey the great law of change. It is the most powerful law of nature.
