In a career spanning over 30 years I've zealously fought for clients accused of virtually all types of crimes - from simple possession of marijuana to carjacking and murder. There is almost nothing I have not already seen and learned to deal with, both in the courtroom and at the negotiating table. I've helped thousands of people get through some of the worst times in their lives. I can help you too.
I've recently completed an in-depth advanced training course on traffic alcohol cases approved by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, and become one of only a few attorneys who have earned certification in Standardized Field Sobriety Testing. This means Ihave been trained and become proficient in exactly the same testing and procedures the police officers must use in order to make arrests for traffic alcohol charges, and can spot errors and omissions in their work and reports that frequently result in cases being dismissed.
Before becoming an attorney I was a private investigator for several years, and before that i was a police officer, including a stint working undercover in narcotics. I've been where the arresting officer has been. I know what he sees, but more importantly I know what he misses.
I've also represented numerous businesses from initial start-up through becoming major players in their fields - including representation in connection with incorporation, LLC agreements,leases, business licensing, government contracts and bid protests.
