My Practice Areas
Former Prosecutor Working For You
Experience matters a lot when it comes to the high-pressure environment of a criminal courtroom. Everything matters. The judge can make decisions that may dismiss your case or send you to prison.
I have more than 20 years of trial experience in front of judges, working with thousands of cases. I spent more than nine of those years on the prosecution side. I understand how the prosecution works, and I know the strategies that can produce a successful result for the accused.
I work to make my clients comfortable working with me. We must trust each other. I speak frankly and don’t bombard you with legalese. You must understand the charges and your defense. I treat you as an individual, not just a client or a defendant.
I Know Your Case Is The Most Important
I am well aware that these cases are difficult and emotionally charged. And that for you, the outcome of your case is tremendously important. The court can strip you of your liberty, and I never forget that. Some people have lost their jobs before a conviction or even before their first day in court.
You need a lawyer who, like you, is concerned about your liberty and your livelihood and who understands the process and how to achieve the best result. I have worked through thousands of cases involving sex crimes, drug crimes, DUI and traffic tickets, and I know how significant the consequences can be for your future.
