About me

I entered law school with the resolve to fight for the rights of those accused of violating the law.  I have been very successful in winning jury and court trials and in negotiations to obtain dismissals or reduced offenses for my clients.  I have dedicated my legal career to criminal defense.  If you are being prosecuted, let me show you what I can do for you.
