After a career as an Officer in the United States Air Force, I decided to attend law school at Widener University School of Law in Wilmington, Delaware. I enjoy being in court, fighting the good fight for my clients.
Most of the cases I handle are criminal defense and DUI cases. I really feel that I can make a positive impact in my clients' lives by fighting for them when they are arrested. A lot of people get charged with crimes they just didn't do. For example, when one person in a car has drugs in his possession, everyone in the car may get indicted on felonies even if they didn't know about the drugs. Also, many times I find that the police and prosecutors overcharge people. Instead of charging people with the crime they committed, they charge them with a more serious crime. For example, in one case my firm handled, the police arrested our client for assault for shooting someone in the leg. When the prosecutor prepared the indictment, he asked the Grand Jury to indict on attempted first degree murder. We fought for the client and got rid of the attempted murder charges.
I also handle a good number of personal injury cases where my clients are injured in automobile accidents. Before I started practicing law, I thought that auto accident law was relatively straighforward. But now I see that clients need a skilled advocate in their corner who is well equipped to fight a multi-billion dollar insurance industry if they ever expect fair compensation. In some of the cases we have handled, we have gotten settlements or awards that are many times higher than the client would have received if they had tried to settle themselves or gone with an attorney that isn't well versed in this practice area.
