About me

As a police officer I was able to gain experience in the field of criminal justice.  Now I bring those experiences to my clients in an effort to ensure their rights are protected.  As one of the only attorneys who has been certified in field sobriety tests (e.g., Horizontal Gaze Nystagmus, Walk and Turn, and One-Leg Stand), as well as the Draeger Alcotest, I bring unique knowledge to the defense of DUIs. 


I strive to quickly respond to all questions my clients have.  I also attempt to treat each clients case as if it were my own.  My goal is to take as much worry out of an extremely stressful situation as possible.
