Firm Overview

Part of the Independence Community for Four Decades

In 1965, we opened the law offices of Welch, Martin & Albano with a commitment to providing personalized client service and legal representation. For more than four decades we have been meeting the needs of our friends and neighbors with a full range of family law and criminal defense services. Many of our clients are referred to us by their parents and grandparents, who think of us as "their family lawyer."

We offer experience, integrity and a commitment to finding the best possible resolution for your case. Contact us to schedule a consultation with one of our lawyers.

Proud to Be Recognized By Our Peers and Clients

Our firm has received the highest AV rating* in the Martindale-Hubbell peer review process. Our attorneys have also received recognition as Super Lawyers and Best Lawyers in America.

Every law firm will talk about experience. If it doesn't translate into effective solutions, experience doesn't really matter. That's where integrity and respect from judges, prosecutors and opposing lawyers makes a difference. Finding the right solution often means working together on your behalf. Our reputation for integrity and passionate representation is your strongest asset.
