I first became a lawyer because, as corny as it might seem, I was enthralled by watching Perry Mason when I was a young boy. The cool and calm demeanor he exhibited in any situation, his crafty cross examination of witnesses that somehow always led to a confession, and not to mention he won all his cases. While in law school, I volunteered at local legal clinics to help people with everyday legal issues they face, from workplace discrimination to holding a bad landlord accountable. It was during this time that I saw what power the law held to help people, to improve people's lives, and to be a "big stick" when necessary. This is one of the reasons I chose to represent people charged with crimes for a living, because so many of my clients are good people even if they made a mistake. And the U.S. Constitution requires that everyone accused of a crime be entitled to a zealous defense, someone to protect their rights and challenge the government's authority when necessary. This is why I do what I do.
As a former prosecuting attorney and Judge Pro Tem, I have the experience and knowledge needed to successfully represent those accused of crimes, whether it is assault, DUI, suspended license, theft, and all other criminal charges. I also handle hundreds of traffic citations a year with an extremely high success rate. I regularly attend and speak at seminars on trial advocacy, stay up to date on new developments in my field, and provide all the resources my clients need to get them through the process successfully. But I also take pride in my client service, keeping clients updated on their cases' progress and informed of all developments. I am also there 24 hours a day if my clients need a question answered or simply want to discuss their case.
Being charged with a crime can be stressful, emotionally and financially. If you find yourself in this situation, put me in your corner. You will be glad you did.
