Our goal is to provide affordable, high-quality legal help. For those who are eligible, we are affiliated with several legal plans, including LegalShield, New York State United Teachers (NYSUT), the "Thank-a-Vet" program, and the Bar Association of Erie County's Lawyer Referral List. Clients should be sure to ask if they qualify for benefits offered by any of these plans.

Community InvolvementPro bono work and other service.

Our firm is committed to the principle of community service. We believe it is an ethical responsibility to give back to the communities in which we live and work. Whether providing services to a pro bono client or dedicating time and support to a local charity, we approach community service with the same effort and passion as our practice.
