About Me

Thank you for reviewing my profile and considering me to represent you in your criminal defense, DUI/DWI, or civil rights case.  


Choosing a lawyer is as important as picking a doctor, and I encourage you to take your time in making this potentially life altering decision.  I also encourage you to contact several attorneys before you contact me so you can see the difference between their hard-selling, used car dealer approach and my approach which is honest, straightforward and no-nonsense.  There is a reason other attorneys drive BMW's or Mercedes, and I don't, but I sleep soundly at night knowing I don't have to mislead anyone to make a living.

In addition, I pride myself in obtaining the best results possible for my clients.  I enjoy an excellent reputation throughout the legal community because of my legal intellect, personal integrity, professionalism, and unrelenting drive to protect my clients. 

I represent clients in Phoenix, Scottsdale, Mesa, Tempe, Chandler, Maricopa County and throughout Arizona.  I also work with a network of attorneys covering many practice areas, so if I cannot personally represent you, I will help you find an attorney who can.
