I have focused on criminal defense for over 15 years. I was fortunate to be hired as a public defender right out of law school and have experience from the most minor misdemeanor cases through homicide cases. Was fortunate to take some time to work on civil rights litigation and have focused now on private criminal defense cases including DUI cases. Litigation includes jury trials, motions to dismiss for speedy trial violations and unlawful searches, as well as writs and appeals. Direct and to the point assesement of cases and what can or cannot be done.
I have represented many clients who have professional licenses and commercial licenses, immigration issues, and take a team approach to best defend the criminal or DUI case to have the least impact.
Representing individuals with mental health issues is one of the things I have experience in and while difficult, very rewarding.
Reasonable rates and more than willing to litigate, but most importantly, work towards goals for the client or better depending on the facts and evidence of the case.
In my spare time, I am involved in various minority and community efforts because it is something that we as lawyers need to do to advocate for.
