I decided to devote my career to defending the rights of those accused of breaking the law because if no one checked on what the government did, it would do whatever it wanted. I help keep the government honest, so that regular people are not deprived of the defense of their rights under the law.
The cases I'm passionate about are not only those where the client is innocent of any wrongdoing, but where there are many questions raised by the evidence that the State will use to obtain a conviction at trial. This includes what law enforcement officials did, and what they did not do. It includes versions of stories that witnesses tell that don't match up or don't make sense. This also includes cases where it is just wrong place at the wrong time.The cases are the ones that drive me.
