About Me

I have practiced criminal law in west central Wisconsin for more than 30 years.  I am a member of the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers (NACDL) and a member and past board member of the Wisconsin Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers (WACDL).  I am one of the founders and a past president of the La Crosse (Wisconsin) Area Criminal Defense Lawyers (LACDL).  I have been awarded the designation "Superlawyer" an honor given to the top 5% of attorneys practicing in the field of criminal defense.
