About me

I have been practicing criminal defense since 1975. I defend white collar, blue collar, and no collar cases in federal, state and local courts. I take great pride in my work for those accused of crimes or who are under investigation. I do everything within my power to achieve an optimum result for my clients. I love my work and my career.

  • Nadine Marie Jett

    I endorse this lawyer. This lawyers contributions to this site are invaluable. I happily endorse this lawyers work, ability and charity to those asking for advice. Further, I like to endorse good lawyers, because I find the AVVO rating system to be dishonest and corrupt. Frequently, disgruntled litigants on the opposing side (not your clients) will bash a lawyer on this site, pretending to be "your" client. When this situation is brought to AVVO attention, Avvo refuses to do anything to investigate and remove the false, slanderous "client" reviews. AVVO is a mean petty internet blog site trying to make money off of lawyers, and does not care if the public receives truthful information.
