Attorneys Melissa E. Adams and Joseph J. Cox each enjoy a well-earned reputation for trial skill and passionate advocacy. The firm prides itself on creative and compassionate service to clients, and zealous advocacy in a range of cases, including allegations of driving under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol, domestic violence, thefts, gun offenses, possession, transportation and sale of drugs and narcotics, white collar crime, vehicular homicide, rape, robbery, burglary and murder. Whether simple or extremely complex litigation, every case is handled in accordance with its seriousness to the interests of the client, not in relation to other offenses.
All three attorneys collaborate on each case to provide the most compelling and innovative defense possible.

Every client we represent can count on:
For most misdemeanor violations, the firm is permitted by law to appear in court on behalf of firm clients. And for those clients accused of a felony, the firm will seek travel permission for clients and file waivers of personal appearance. In many instances, the firm can resolve a client’s case without the client ever having to appear. Whether a client is from New York, Florida, Nevada or elsewhere, the firm is always in search of ways to make a client’s exposure to the criminal justice system as trouble-free as possible and limit the expense involved.
