I am a Board Certified Criminal Trial Lawyer.
Let my 23 years of experience defending criminal cases work for you. If you have been arrested, then you need to speak with a lawyer about the facts and circumstances of your case. Every case is different and an experienced trial lawyer can spot issues and explore probable defenses in your case.
Over the past 23 years, I have personally handled over 10,000 criminal cases and I have tried well over 200 jury trials to Verdict.
Although I handle ALL types of criminal cases, I have a lifelong passion for firearms and the outdoors. I am a Life member of the NRA and the North American Hunting Club and I am a Zealous advocate for 2nd Amendment rights. This benefits clients especially in handling firearms cases as I have a far greater knowledge and understanding of firearms and the applicable laws because of my personal interests.
It costs you nothing to simply discuss your case with me.
