About me

Before beginning the practice of law, I spent ten years in the United States Marine Corps flying F4 Phantoms and F/A-18 fighter aircraft on all-weather, day / night missions from land bases and aircraft carriers throughout the world.


I have been practicing criminal defense law for over twelve years and have handled thousands of felony, misdemeanor, violation of probation, DUI, driving offense, drug  and financial crime cases.


Additionally, I spent several years practicing civil litigation in the areas of professional liability, premises liability, construction defect, personal injury, real estate and business disputes.


I make myself avaible 24/7 to my clients and I stay in constant communication.
