Our Legal Team
As criminal defense and personal injury attorneys, we understand that the legal system is not set up in favor of defendants or plaintiffs. That is why we have shaped our entire practice to be client-centered and compassionate. Our lawyers take special care to explain the court process and ensure that clients feel heard and understood. We understand that a crime does not define a defendant.

As a defendant, you have a right to legal counsel. That counsel should be honest with you, answer your questions, and show compassion when faced with your concerns. They should also be effective in the courtroom. At Best And Brock, we know that our relationship to our clients is at the heart of our practice. We combine genuine concern for our clients with strict attention to their legal rights.
