About me

The bulk of my practice is centered around criminal defense and personal injury cases.

In my criminal defense work I handle all types of cases including, but not limited to: DUI, traffic offenses, reckless driving, hit and run, domestic violence, serious crimes including violent offenses, drive by shootings, aggravated assaults, drug possession and sale, theft cases.  I have appeared in numerous courts across the state, as well as in federal court.

As an avid and competitive cyclist and triathlete, I focus on personal injury cases for athletes injured while racing or training.  While that is the majority of my personal injury case work, I also handle other personal injury cases such as well.

I also handle general civil litigation and real estate matters.  From breach of contracts, to assisting in developing and selling multi-million dollar properties, I can assist you.

On a personal note, I am a third generation Phoenician who is proud to call Phoenix my home.  I live in Phoenix with my wife and two sons.
