Selecting a criminal defense attorney is a critical decision. You want an experienced advocate who sees you as a person, not a case. 

Our approach is what sets us apart. Owner and Lead Attorney Ken Blanford sets the bar with his passion for connecting with clients on a personal level. He fosters relationships without assumptions, or preconceived notions, and he focuses on establishing a deep rapport with every individual he represents.

Taking the lead from Ken, we are no-nonsense and relentless, fair and honest. We are great listeners instead of fast talkers – that is just who we are.

More than 20 years ago, Ken began practicing law with a profound belief that every person has the right to the best representation available to them, and he has built a law firm on that belief.
