About Me

I love trials. I am on a streak of 5 trials where the jury returned verdicts of "Not Guilty" on all or the most serious counts in which my clients were charged. Each case is unique, but I hope to extend that streak! Being an effective trial lawyer also allows me to negotiate favorable results for my client. You should always ask a trial lawyer about his last 5 trials and whether he was lead or co-counsel . . . listen to the answer before choosing.
