About me

I was born and raised in Ogle County and have practiced my entire career here. I have been a prosecutor and defense attorney in criminal matters. I have handled divorce, child custody and related matters. I have been appointed as Public Defender by the Judges of the 15th Judicial Circuit. I emphasize the use of technology in my practice.
