About Me

 


I have wanted to be a trial attorney since law school when I competed in moot court.  Now, when my clients are faced with very serious consequences I rely upon my 16 years of criminal law experience in defending them to the best of my ability.  I am ultra competitive and will always be the most prepared attorney in the courtroom.  That's what you need in a defense attorney.
