Nothing is pleasant about divorce, even when you and your future ex-spouse part amicably. Our family divorce attorneys understand that and will ensure that the process goes as smoothly as possible for you. Some of the specific legal matters to attend to in a divorce case include:
Child support, custody, and visitation
Division of assets and debts
Alimony, if applicable
We are available to assist you whether you petitioned for the divorce or are the respondent. If either you or your spouse do not initially agree on the terms of the settlement, we will fight for a fair settlement on your behalf before the family court.
Just because you have been accused of a crime doesn’t mean you’re guilty of it. Many people seem to forget that our justice system was founded on the simple fact one is presumed innocent until proven guilty. You are entitled to fair legal representation, regardless of the specific charge against you. As criminal defense lawyers, Wilson, Frame & Metheney will offer you the following:
Interview witnesses, re-create crime scenes, and use other legal tools to prove you are not guilty
Negotiate a plea bargain if that is in your best interest
Try your case in court if necessary
Persuade a court judge to lower or eliminate your bail
Represent you in court by demanding that the prosecution prove evidence against you, that you are permitted to call your own witnesses, and cross-examine the witnesses for the prosecution.
Although things might look bleak right now, hiring the best criminal defense attorney is essential to fight for your freedom.

Child sexual abuse
Foster care abuse
Sexual abuse in youth organizations
Clergy sexual abuse
Workplace harassment or abuse of a sexual nature
Sexual harassment or abuse of the elderly
Rape or sexual assault
Online harassment of a sexual nature
