About Me

If you have been arrested for a traffic offense, a DUI or a felony charge, don't despair. We are here to listen to your concerns and fight for your rights.


---


I have been practicing law in Gwinnett County since 1989.  I live in Gwinnett County, and have volunteered as an officer in the Gwinnett County Bar Association and the Criminal Defense Section of the county's bar association.


 


My practice is 100% criminal defense.  Most of my cases are DUI or DUI-related, such as vehicular homicide or serious injury by DUI.  The rest of my practice involves cases that start as traffic stops and become drug arrests.


 


Most of my clients are referred to me by other attorneys.  I will refer my clients to qualified attorneys in other areas of the law, or in areas of Georgia where I do not go to court often.
