About Me

I've had the opportunity to defend countless clients over the several years that I have been in practice.  I've helped people on simple matters like speeding tickets all the way up to serious felonies and murder.  I truly take pride in my work because I believe our constitutional system is truly unique in the world, where a defendant has a right to his/her day in court, a right to remain silent, and a right to put the government to the task of proving it's case.  While the system is certainly not perfect, it's my every day job to push it further and further toward a truly just system.  And, in doin so, I like to think that I have truly helped people out in their time of need.

    I have had the pleasure of working with James during law school in legal clinics and in moot court. I know him to be a tireless advocate for his clients. James has demonstrated unwavering dedication to the practice of criminal defense and I have the utmost confidence in his abilities as a talented litigator.
