I have been practicing criminal law for over 18 years. I began my career as a prosecutor and used the experience I gained to aggressively defend those accused of a crime.
My philosphy is that everyone is entitled to excellent representation no matter what type of charge they are facing. I handle all cases from serious felonies to petty misdemeanors.
