About Me

I am a true believer and knew since I was fourteen years old that I wanted to be a criminal defense attorney.  I believe that the American Justice system is the best in the world - mainly because it allows defense attorneys such lattitude to establish reasonable doubt.  I have handled thousands of criminal cases over the past 10 years and have conducted hundreds of preliminary hearings as well as countless motions and other sorts of litigation.  I belive that the only way to practice criminal defense is to be "in the trenches" with my client.
