I am a trial attorney practicing in the areas of criminal defense, military law and firearm rights advocacy and restoration. Most days, you can find me a courtroom at trial, sentencing, negotiation, or other hearing. I employ a vigorous motions practice, and have advanced negotiation and alternative dispute resolution training. I am results-oriented and enjoy working with my clients to assist them in achieving their goals for their case. Having come from a military family, I especially enjoy working with military/veteran clients and military legal issues. My clients like the fact that I'm passionate about what I do and I am not afraid to fight hard for them, but I am also a down-to-earth person they can relate to. I have a hollistic approach, and believe that a successful outcome is the one in which my client is involved in the decision-making process throughout, and is hopefully better off at the end of the representation than at the beginning. Although I credit my Duke and UW educational background for teaching me how to think like a lawyer and developing my writing chops, I know that what really makes me a successful attorney is my fearless attitude and not being a stranger to hard work. If you have any questions about my practice and how I can help you, please call or email me. I offer a free consultation to discuss your legal concerns.
