Experienced attorneys who will fight to protect your rights
Meet the Attorneys of Laporte, Mulligan & Werner-Watkins, P.A.
We have limited our areas of practice to Personal Injury/Wrongful Death and Criminal Defense intentionally, so we can provide the most professional representation possible. Because our clients consider us friends, they often call us about other legal matters. In those cases where our services do not apply, we gladly help locate an attorney for them. An attorney, like us, they can trust completely and have confidence will represent their needs to the utmost.
