About me

In 2002 I completed an externship with the Cook County Public Defender's Office.  At the time I was still attending the John Marshall Law School but I obtained my 711 license which enabled me to represent clients while I was still a law student. 


 


After I graduated from law school and passed the bar exam I immediately went into private criminal defense and I never regreted it.  I have always found criminal defense work to be fun and rewarding.  My approach to criminal defense starts with an analysis of the allegations in the charging document.  I review the discovery and ascertain whether there is sufficient evidence to prove the allegations beyond a reasonable doubt.  May standard approach is to do a risk reward analysis with my client and help them decide whether they want to go to trial. 


 


My objective is the same in all cases.  I aspire to accomplish the goals of my clients.
