About Me

My firm is dedicated to the Defense of those that charged with a crime.  We take every case very personally, and are available 24/7.  I have tried many, many cases, and I always give my client the option of a Jury Trial. Sometimes to get the best results an attorney must be fully prepared to go to trial. This is a boutique law firm, with staff that can advise you how to deal with the frustration of being arrested. 


 


I am an avid Surfer, Sailor, and Fisherman. I also sponsor many different charities, as well as local surf contests.  When not in the office you will find me in the water!
