Among other practice areas, ELO provides holistic legal assistance and counsel to families impacted by an addicted loved one.  Due to legal ethics and potential conflicts, we are unable to provide criminal defense or any other representation to your addicted loved one.  Rather, we serve YOUR interests as you navigate the complex web of legal, social, and emotional issues stemming from your relative’s substance abuse.   We recognize that addiction is a disease.  You do not have to be ruled by their disease.
