About me

I've been interested in criminal law since working as a police dispatcher during high school. To me, criminal law has always felt the most like real law, because of the impact it has on real people. I enjoy spending my time in a courtroom, and I live to argue. I've served as a prosecutor and as a defense attorney, so I understand criminal law from both sides of the table.

I place a premium on placing my client's in the best situation to resolve their issues. I will counsel you every step of the way, and you will know you're getting the best possible resolution to your problem.
