About Me

As  a former prosecutor and public defender I have the experience that is needed to help you in your defense.  I have worked both sides of more criminal defense cases than I can remember.  I have had a case just like yours before and know how the case will go.  I can give you the advice you need for the best resolution.  Also, if you will be best served by a public defender I will tell you that.
