He initially was a Godsend... or so I very wrongly believed. After our first meeting in the court lock-up, when he told me how he was going to help me, everything changed, quickly and drastically. I called him from jail, collect, which he gets reimbursed for, and asked how he was doing. He very nastily and arrogantly said, "what do you want? This is a collect call." Right then I knew I was in trouble. His demeanor was so rotten, his hatred so blatant and his plans for me so obvious. He clearly had no intention whatever to defend me. I was hurt and confused by his 180 degree about-face and meekly tried to convey that to him. He was so mean! Each time I spoke with him, he repeatedly asked me if I'd like him to withdraw from my case. He only took my case to appease the court and make himself look good, never intending to help me, fully intending to hurt me, if I could stand his horrible, dispicable vicious treatment towards me. Of course I couldn't. At our last meeting at the jail, he kept asking me if I wanted him to withdraw about fifty times, so I said, "It's rather evident that you want to withdraw. Go ahead." He spoke not one word, smiled very condescendingly, picked up his laptop and briefcase and walked out on me. Period.
My booking video stated clearly that I was arrested for Disorderly Conduct. Somehow I was now sitting in jail for attempted murder of a police officer with a knife! I sat there rotting for ten months, thanks totally to lousy, " only- good- if-you-pay-big-bucks," court appointed a-holes that have the audacity to look in the mirror and call themselves defense "lawyers." To allow such a miscarriage of justice is not only disgraceful and immoral and sinful beyond words, but it is worse than the bogus charge that I was tried and convicted for. Ten months in jail and four years of probation, and I wasn't even Disorderly. My life has been a nightmare since January 28, 2014 and it will never change. My faith in humanity, justice and God is DEAD. If you get him for a lawyer and you're not paying him and police lie their butts off, good luck. He rots, and that is a compliment for him.

A case he handled for a family member that ended on September 2012. This was horrible, from the time we hired him to the end. He claims to be the affordable, knowledgeable , criminal defense lawyer but what you will be getting is an expansive court appointed lawyer (public defender). He did not prepare defendant for trial, including preparing his defense strategy, documents, nor he coached defendant for courtroom examination on a case that had no evidences, no main witness such as police, Doctors and etc.It was the DA version vs. his and case ended (horribly) faster than it started.
