About me

I consider myself an aggressive, prepared, and determined criminal defense lawyer and I've devoted myself to my profession. I am fascinated by the law and I enjoy fighting to protect the rights of my clients.  Whether you are charged with first degree murder or a misdemeanor marijuana case, I always give 100%.
