About Me

I believe that a mistake should not ruin the rest of a person's life.  I work with good people that have been accused of criminal offenses.  Criminal cases have severe consequences.  Many of these consequences occur outside the court case and have long lasting impacts on a person's life.  Together my clients and I develop a unique strategy that is tailored to each client's case.  We then implement that strategy to protect their lives, livelihoods, and rights.  I have found this approach provides the best defense against criminal charges.
