About me

I have dedicated my practice to criminal defense and most specifically DUI defense.  I have attended special training, the same training that law enforcement officers undergo in order to investigate DUIs.  I have never defended a DUI case where we were unable to find some weakness or problem with the State's case to get better results.  I not only zealously defend DUIs at the criminal level, I also dedicate as much time and attention to the Driver's License hearings.  I get results for my clients.  

Not only do I have a very experienced knowledge on DUI defense and investigations, I sincerely care about my clients and how my work directly impacts their personal lives.  I will get results for you.
