About Me

As a sole practitioner, I provide my clients with the benefit of over 30 years of legal experience.  As a former federal prosecutor and now as a defense attorney, I understand what the prosecutor needs to show for a conviction and what the defense needs to demonstrate for a not guilty verdict.
