About me


I understand that being charged with a criminal offense can be a daunting experience. The court system can be confusing, difficult and frustrating. I always strive to give you the strongest possible legal defense, as well as provide you with the information that you need in order to understand your options at each stage of the process. My goal is to provide you with exceptional, caring and competent representation so that you can navigate through the adjudicative process with ease.
