Criminal Defense

We handle the defense of all misdemeanors and felonies, from traffic violations and juvenile matters to drug crimes, sex offense and homicide. We can provide representation in state or federal criminal matters. We are skilled and experienced trial attorneys who will protect your constitutional rights in court, if necessary. For more information, see our criminal law page.

Traffic Violations

We defend individuals charged with a wide range of moving violations, from speeding or reckless driving to DUI/DWI, hit-and-run, and misdemeanor or felony death by vehicle. We represent local residents as well as out-of-state visitors traveling through the area. We will work hard to minimize the impact on your driving and insurance records. To learn more, go to our page on traffic violations.

Family Law

We represent men and women at all stages of a divorce or family law matter, from the decision to file through post-judgment requests for modification or enforcement of existing divorce decrees. We will help you explore all your options, including negotiated settlements, mediation and the collaborative approach to divorce, but are always prepared to take your case to trial to protect your interests.

We handle all matters related to or arising out of divorce, including child custody and visitation, child support, spousal support or alimony, the equitable distribution of marital property and paternity actions. See our page on family law to learn more.

Personal Injury

We represent people who have suffered personal injury as a result of the careless or negligent acts of others. Most of the personal injury claims we handle involve motor vehicle accidents, but we also take cases involving assault, alienation of affection and slip-and-fall accidents. Attorney Falcone represents clients in workers' compensation claims.
