About me

During my 45+ years, I have represented more than 29,000 criminal clients. I have been retained in criminal matters to represent Judges, Attorneys, World Champion Boxers, Olympic Champions, Physicians, Dentists, Police Officers, Firemen, Accountants, College Students, and a large variety of other occupations. I have won numerous motions to suppress evidence resulting in my clients case being dismissed. I have tried hundreds of cases and obtained not guilty verdicts for my clients that were charged with murder, attempted murder, assault, assault upon a police officer, rape, robbery, burglary, indecent exposure, driving under the influence of alcohol, driving under the influence of prescription drugs, statutory rape, molestation, forgery, petty theft, domestic violence and many more. All cases are different and most cases are resolved by dismissal or negotiated disposition.
