About Me

I am a forward-thinking, passionate person and apply those characteristics to my profession.  I don't judge people charged.  I want my clients to get the best possible representation, without regard to whether they are guilty or innocent.


I want every one of my clients to feel they got what they hoped from hiring a lawyer.  Many attorneys promise the moon before getting hired.  My motto is "Underpromise and Overdeliver".  When our case is finished, I want to be able to look each one of my clients in the eyes and be proud of how I performed.  


Read my blog, my lawyer endorsements, client recommendations, and other sites to get an idea of who I am, how I think, and how I perform as an attorney.
