About Me

The ONLY local member of the merit based National College for DUI Defense, I make it my priority to keep abreast of all developments in the defense of criminal and DUI cases so that I can use that knowledge to make certain my clients get the best representation possible.
I'm not just swinging through the area to appear on your case. You won't get a rotating cast of attorneys you didn't hire, and who don't know your case. I am not learning DUI and criminal defense or the important players in the courthouse on your dime. I've been a member of the legal communities where I practice for over 20 years, forging relationships, sharpening my skills by defending my clients and trying those cases for three decades.
