    Expungements are a means for persons who have been convicted of certain crimes to effectively erase their criminal records.

    traffic violations

    The mismanagement of traffic tickets can lead to unexpected and dire consequences. Don’t assume all traffic violations are harmless.

    federal cases

      Last year, I was at the lowest point in my life-I was lost and needed help in navigating this whole legal process I was facing. I was having a whole host of concerns … read more that had me feeling extremely anxious, afraid, and defeated, knowing that I was facing the unknown and facing consequences that could potentially change my entire life.
      When I met Ernie, I was terrified and panicking. Ernie was so compassionate and patient with me and he didn't make me feel like just another client, he made me feel like his friend.
      We exchanged information about my case, and were able to quickly build rapport and trust. He was sympathetic when discussing my fears associated with criminal charges and the consequences that were pending against me. He took time to understand my current situation, develop my case, and worked with me to decide on a course of action.
      The positive end result he was able to achieve helped me get my life back on track. He took the initiative to go beyond my expectations and pursue a resolution for my case, while being understanding of my financial situation and working with me to ensure that I retained legal representation throughout my case, and I will never ever be able thank him enough for being there for me during the hardest, most trying time in my life !!
      If you're seeking legal help from someone who truly cares about the welfare of his clients and who always goes beyond the call of duty, call Ernie today!

      Mr Bauer is very professional. Does not judge and is kind and courteous. I trust him for my case and am very thankful and blessed to have him on my side.

      Easy drive-thru order process and them sit in the parking lot and wait between eight and fifteen minutes for your pizza to be ready and then back of the driveway … read more again and gone. Frankly I like that. You can also order online. The pieces taste just as good as Pizza Hut or Domino's. Yes they have gone up since but still
