About me


I am an enthusiastic criminal defense attorney.  Criminal law is the only area I've practiced in and I greatly enjoy obtaining positive outcomes for my clients. I work hard to keep my clients informed of every change in their case.  I truly believe that when you hire someone to protect your freedom, you deserve to hear from them more frequently than the day before a hearing. 

Don't let my baby-face fool you.  I'll avidly advocate for you, your rights and, for your case.
