About Me

I am a criminal defense attorney. I pride myself on being a fierce advocate for the accused. 


 


Being accused of a crime can be a terrifying experience. An important part of my job is to make sure that you understand what is going on with your case during each step of the process. There are many things that can be done to mitigate or eliminate the unpleasant consequences of the criminal justice system.  My practice focuses on DUI and criminal defense; my focus is on you


 


I offer clients an affordable flat fee as well as short term payment plans. Please call us for a free consultation.
