About me

Regent University - Law Degree 2004

Virginia Beach Police Officer 1992-2007

My 15 years as a Virginia Beach Police Officer, a degree in psychology and another in law, have giving me a unique background to successfully defend hundreds of clients each year in courtrooms throughout Hampton Roads and Southeastern Virginia. I understand how the prosecution works to bring a case against you and this knowledge has given me a distinct advantage, with proven results, when defending my clients against criminal and traffic matters.

    I had the opportunity to work with Jerrell Johnson when I was a prosecutor. Jerrell is dedicated to getting the best results for his clients. He works hard before the trial date to get as much information about the case as possible and he is articulate and persuasive when defending his clients in Court. He is an excellent defense attorney.
