About me

I am an attorney that is dedicated to fighting on behalf of my clients.  I seek justice for those that have been wronged and for those that have made mistakes.  The legal system is a complicated minefield and it is essential that every defendant in our criminal justice system have access to effective legal representation in order to protect their rights when navigating this minefield.  Please feel free to call my office anytime in order to have your case assessed by a legal professional.
