See my client reviews,....I have always worked to defend the accused and I have never been a prosecutor. I am proud and grateful to be a criminal defense attorney. My life is dedicated to enforcing the constitutional rights of persons accused of crime.
Would you hire a car thief to install your car alarm? No,.. you would hire a professional installer. Then why would you hire a "former prosecutor" who claims to "know how the other side thinks?" Like a car thief stealing cars,... prosecutors steal lives by often over-charging the accused persons,... and then fighting only to win, while ignoring the truth.
Like the police, these ex-prosecutors have worked to ignore the truth and put those accused of crime in prison or jail. Like the police, they were code enforcers, and often ignored your constitutional right to due process. While zealously enforcing the criminal codes as former prosecutors, they have stolen the lives of those falsely accused of crime, as a car thief steals cars.
If you are facing criminal charges (even DUI is a crimnal offense) you need a dedicated criminal defender, not a "former prosecutor" who claims to "know how the other side thinks;" a claim that is an unethical advertising ploy, implying that they can get you a deal from their former buddies.
So if you just want to cut a deal and do time in prison or jail, then hire a former prosecutor. Along with too many attorneys who claim to practice criminal defense, they will be happy to take your money, and then tell you that you got the best deal possible.... as you are shipped off to prison or jail. Do not hire me if this is what you are looking for.
However, if you truly need a dedicated criminal defense lawyer who will really fight for your rights, then give me a call at 209-888-8900 or 925-222-5925,.... or find another true criminal defense attorney. Find one who is "always for the accused," and was never a prosecutor, (who once worked to put people like you in jail or prison). (always4theaccused.com)
Don't hire a bull to fight for you in a bull fight. You will only end up covered in BS. Hire an experienced bull-fighter who knows how to wear down the bull, take it by the horns, and deliver the final coup de grace.
