While the guilt or innocence of my clients is very important, I take my responsibility as their attorney far beyond the courtroom. I have relationships with local and regional job banks and fast food establishments who have hired some of my more deserving clients. I have found that the best way to rehabilitate the thief is to provide them with a job so that they may purchase what they need and the road to recovery from a drug or alcohol addiction can begin with the self-respect that a good day’s work can provide.
Blindly defending those that are guilty will only serve to see them before court again in the future. I will always vigorously defend those that seek my counsel to the best of my ability. But those individuals in whom I see a chance for rehabilitation will receive a dose of my brand of social work as well.

I handled matters with Mr. Raya while I was an Assistant Prosecutor, and have seen him at work in my new capacity as a defense attorney. I am always impressed with his knowledge, and his passion for each individual client.
