About Me

WE FIGHT TO PROTECT YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS
UNDER THE LAW.

When life requires you to contact an attorney to assist you in some manner – whether if be a divorce or other family matter, suffering an injury due to someone else, an immigration concern, or you have a corporate/ commercial issue – your lawyer MUST fight to protect your legal rights and advance your cause.

Anderson Legal Group LLC recognizes and follows this understanding. We work for your benefit and advise you if certain decisions are in your best interests, even if you, as a participant in the matter, cannot see it due to the conflict involved.

We pursue your issue in the manner you want because, in legal matters, the client is the one that must make and live with the difficult decisions.
