I limit my legal practice to representing only those clients charged with DUI and other criminal offenses arising out of Pinellas County, Florida. I am a former state prosecutor with a wealth of background and experience in these specific areas of the law.
My goal is to defend each individual client with the utmost expertise and compassion - to win acquittals where possible, and where conviction seems inevitable, to obtain alternative sentences or treatment rather than imprisonment.
You are invited to meet with me for a free consultation to discuss the individual facts and circumstances of your case.
