About Me

I have been practicing since 1978 and currently concentrate my practice in Family Court (no divorce or support matters) and criminal defense. I have tried numerous felony and misdemeanor cases to jury verdicts, including homicide, rape, arson, and child molestation cases. These include several prosecution trials, as I have been assigned as a Special District Attorney over 50 times in 3 counties. I am also an active children's Attorney representing children in Family Court, and take assigned criminal and family cases from the courts. A significant number of my retained cases are referred to me by other attorneys.
