About Me

The majority of my practice revolves around DUI, traffic, misdemeanor, and felony cases. When you hire me, your case is not just a file on a desk somewhere that only gets looked at on your court date. If you call or text message me, I'm the one that answers, when we go to court, I'll be the one there with you, not an associate. 


Feel free to read some reviews from others detailing how my office has helped them when they were facing criminal or traffic charges, then feel free to give me a call to setup a free initial consultation for any criminal matter to discuss your case.
