The practice of law was the natural extension of a career in the military. In the military I was an officer assigned to B-52s as a Navigator and eventually an Instructor Radar Navigator. The military, especially crewed aircraft teaches young aviators certain rules. To stay alive, you better know what you are doing. To win the fight, you better know how to work as a team. You and your team are the force that protects and serves best.
I have not forgotten those important lessons. My client's are a part of my team. My staff is part of that same team. Most people on my legal team are former military members. We have the work ethich to make sure we know the case. We have the work ethic to ensure we know the applicable law. Most importantly, we apply the principles of our miltary past to ensure the best prepared team represents our clients.
It was an honor to serve in the United States Air Force. It has been an honor work with JAG attorneys in military criminal case.
It is always an honor when people with problems place their trust in our team.

Dan and I defended a hotly contested, "no win" court-martial case with three separate complainants alleging sexual assault. After multiple delays and a lengthy motion practice, we provided our client the best representation possible and, considering the facts, received the best outcome possible. I highly endorse this lawyer.
