I have tried hundreds of cases to verdict, representing clients in both criminal and civil matters, including but not limited to: DUI, felony and misdemeanor criminal defense,  personal injury, including automobile accidents, dog bites, slip and falls, wrongful death and medical malpractice as well as other civil litigation. I have represented both plaintiffs and defendants, as well as petitioners seeking reinstatement of their drivers licenses.
