Civil Litigation

Non-criminal law: that’s civil litigation. Cases that deal with construction, real estate, and product liability—we cover these areas and other disputes under the banner of civil litigation. Typically, these cases involve private citizens as either plaintiff or defendant.

Criminal Defense

This practice area covers everything from drug misdemeanors to homicide, and our 40 years of experience means that we’ve defended felony offenses of all kinds. Here are just some of the types of criminal cases (including trial representation) we defend:

  • DUIs
  • Traffic violations
  • Domestic violence
  • Computer crimes
  • Juvenile offenses
  • Burglary
  • Robbery
  • Theft
  • Drug offenses
  • Homicide
  • Rape/Sexual offenses

Employment Law

If you’ve been subjected to or retaliated against for discrimination or harassment in the workplace, our attorneys stand ready to represent you. We work with employees to analyze the full extent of your emotional injury as well as endeavor to recover lost wages and benefits. Working with us lets you actually get back to work, apply for jobs, or keep on interviewing.

Personal Injury

After an accident, you deserve compensation to the full extent of the law. The attorneys at MSP get started right away, dealing with insurance companies on your behalf to reduce the already-considerable burden on you and your family. We’ll help recover any lost compensation and wages, plus pursue compensation for your medical expenses, pain and suffering, reduction in ability to earn money, long-term care needs, and other losses you’ve suffered. We take the burden of litigation off your shoulders so you can focus on what matters most: your health and your family’s well-being.

Wrongful Death

Your family deserves justice in the stressful, painful event of a wrongful death. It’s not just a way to find closure; it’s also a way to pursue compensation, like a lifetime of earnings, retirement benefits, and other employment benefits—plus loss of consortium or other services. And if your loved one left behind children, we know it’s critical that you get everything you need to continue caring for and raising them. Our attorneys guide you through the legal process with patience, empathy, and as always, passion in pursuit of justice.

Family Law

Family Law can be one of the most stressful practice areas of all—which is why our attorneys take it so seriously. Our experience helping people just like you navigate divorce, division of assets and debts, child custody, child support, adoption, and even domestic violence means you get objective advice and counsel that takes every detail into account.

Estate Planning and Probate

Do you have a will? Do you know who executes it, and why you should have one in the first place? Do you know who gets what if you pass away? We work with clients who plan ahead and families dealing with the complication of not planning ahead. Last wills, living wills, power of attorney, testamentary trusts, or the lack of those things—we handle it all. Have questions about the confusing jargon in your life insurance policy? We can help you navigate that, too.

Business Law

Running a business isn’t a venture for the faint of heart. We know because we’ve helped countless business owners draw up contracts, negotiate deals, get their start-ups off the ground, and reduce the risk of litigation. If you own your business, our advice and guidance takes the legal guesswork out of protecting yourself and your customers.
