About Me

I am a criminal defense and domestic relations lawyer practicing throughout Virginia, but predominantly in the Hampton Roads area.


 


If you are charged with a crime, or if you are a man facing divorce, you need an attorney.


 


Having had divorced parents as a child, I understand the need for a father to fight for as much custody and visitation as possible in Virginia's system.  I have fought for custody for fathers, and I have won.  I have fought against spousal support payments and I have fought to protect assets such as retirement accounts, military retirement, homes, and personal property, and I have won.


 


With experience defending clients charged with offenses ranging from reckless driving to violent felonies such as malicious wounding, rape, sexual offenses against children and child pornography, and more, I bring the experience you need to reach the result you want in any criminal case.
