About Me

I litigate civil rights cases because I believe in them.  I believe in the right to free speech, the right of citizens' to be secure in their own homes, and the right to be free from false prosecutions and excessive force at the hands of the police.  This is why I went to law school, and why I have spent the last 12 years fighting for my clients as hard as I possible can. If we do not protect our rights, no one will protect them for us.
