About me

What do you look for in an attorney? I'm a natural born negotiator....I've been working passionately and aggressively, fighting to defend the defenseless for nearly 15 years. Are you facing a serious felony or frightening misdemeanor? Look no further...I am your gun for hire! 


I run a boutique practice which allows me to pick and choose my clients.  My office doesn't accept every case, only those in which we take an interest in and those which  best fit our unique approach to criminal law.


Don't fool yourself...if you've just been arrested and are facing criminal charges.. now is not the time to be weak or cheap. Choose wisely, choose well - choose our office to understand what VIP service, attention to detail and clever defense strategies can do for you!


We are standing by to assist you, call TOLL FREE at 1-888-704-9777!


We are competitively priced and poised to free you from your worries.
