About Me

I believe a defense attorney is more capable of defending clients when that attorney has also been a prosecutor.  I have over 8 years of experience as a prosecutor, both while in the Army and while working for the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office.  My experience as a prosecutor has helped me to look at both sides of the case and anticipate the problems that may arise on either side to help me defend my clients. Having tried these cases as a prosecutor, I already know what the prosecutors have been trained to do and this helps me to attack their cases more effectively.

I have always been a very thorough and detailed oriented individual. This means that I look under every stone to overturn any evidence that I can find to assist me in defending my clients.  My tenacity in locating this evidence will often result in turning the impossible and indefensible case into a very triable and strong case for my clients.  If there is a way to get my clients out of the mess that they find themselves in, I will find it.

I also work for the Law Offices of Lawrence Taylor that exclusively defends those accused of driving under the influence.  Every month we receive training in our field and I constantly stay abreast of the latest DUI case law and legislation.  Visit our website to learn more about me and our firm:
