“The Defense Never Rests.”

Competing For Clients Together

Isabelle and Steve share the same passion for criminal defense work. They enjoy the fight inherent to criminal cases and love to challenge every aspect of their clients’ cases, every step of the way. They thrive in the complexity of cases involving forensics science. No case, no science is too difficult for them to comprehend or too hard to contest. Their ethic is to litigate to win. Their ambition is to be a leader in the field of criminal defense work and forensic sciences. Isabelle and Steve compete together to achieve the best outcome for their clients. They use a collective and collaborative approach, work on cases together, and always consult each other. Clients in our firm are our clients. Isabelle and Steve complete each other’s skills. Isabelle and Steve like to fight cases, however, they also understand that behind each case is a client. Our clients receive attention, communication, care, and respect. Because we believe successful outcomes for our clients go beyond the legal issues, we get to know our clients, their families, their hopes, and their fear. We build a professional relationship of trust that allows us to be effective and persuasive advocates for our clients, now and in the future.
