About me

Thank you for taking time to review my profile on I focus my practice on criminal defense, appeals, and litigation generally. I also work with a network of attorneys to provide additional legal services for my clients so that their needs are always taken car of regardless of the issue. I am always happy to talk about any legal issue you may be facing.


The law is more than just a business to me, it's an opportunity to practice law on a personal level.  I make it a practice to return calls, listen to my clients, and fight for each person like they were my only client.
