About Me

I became a lawyer over thirty years ago. Not to make a million dollars, but to make a difference. 


Since then, I have been able to make a difference in people's lives, one person at a time.  The vast majority of my cases are of a criminal nature, and I have learned that there is more to representing a person than just guilt or innocense. The whole person matters- his or her job; his family; her hopes for the future.  


The worst thing that anybody can do after he or she has been arrested is, to do nothing. This is time where the future is more than just guilt or innocense, but how the situation is handled, how one learns from it, and how to plan so that, five or ten years down the road, one's life is a good as it can be.


I have been a prosecutor for the State, a Circuit Public Defender, served on state-wide boards, and handled every type of criminal matter, from speeding tickets to murder cases. I have over thirty years of experience working with the people who have roles in the system.


Whether your goal is to protect your job, keep your driver's license, protect your future, protect your family, or protect your life,  you will have only ONE chance to deal with your situation and get it right. I am the guy to help you do just that. It's YOUR life- your family, your job, your future- that's at risk. So, TAKE CHARGE of this situation, and my staff and I will help you do it right.
