Areas of Practice

Workers' Compensation

Immediately after the accident, report it to your supervisor and make sure an incident report is made. Even if your injury seems minor, it’s best to have a record of the event in case complications arise later on.

Criminal Defense

If you have been charged with a crime, are under investigation, or think that you may be charged in the future, it is important that you take steps to protect yourself. There is a lot at stake when you are being prosecuted.

Elder Law

Elder Law encompasses many fields of law with a focus on planning for the unique legal needs of individuals in their later years. WF&J attorneys serve as advocates for the elderly, and are affiliated with the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys.

Personal Injury

Mistakes and accidents are everyday events in our society. Thankfully, the majority of these daily encounters are minor and of little or no consequence to our long-term health and well-being. We invite you to learn more about personal injury litigation.
