This attorney reccomended that we plea guilty with probation and restitution. Did not defend us. Was only concerned about being paid. Does not communicate. In the beginning will hype you up about being able to help you. Failed to help us. We do not reccomend this lawyer. You would have a better chance representing yourself or hiring someone else. Non criminal defense lawyer.

Used fear to get me to plea out and I paid him $2,000. He said it did not matter that I was not guilty, I was taking a huge risk that a jury was risky and you never know what a jury would do. He also said the court is getting pressured to prosecute. This made no sense, but because I had never been involved in the law or anything criminal, I was scared and ignorant. He played on my fear, ignorance & innocence. I said I will NOT plea any form of GUILTY, because I didn't do anything! Then I was forced into requesting a plea deal of probation in fear that I could go to jail for something I didn't do even though I kept saying I wanted to fight it. He kept wearing me down as I waited in the hallway. Then when I went in to plea, the judge looked at the case and was disgusted that I was even there. It was too late to change anything. Then I was told when signing the paperwork that it was same as guilty! I totally got SCREWED!!!!! It looks like he was hoping to juice me for an expungement too!
