About me


Court is an intimidating place. You are intimidated by the Judge, State Attorney or Government and the process itself. Don't be bullied by the system. FIGHT BACK with the attorney Catherine Crier from Court TV called "top notch".

A cocky slogan means nothing without the reputation to back it up. Please see my further victories on
