About me

I believe that every person charged with a criminal offense deserves a fair trial and equal treatment under the Law.  I try to treat all of my clients with the same dignity and respect that I feel the law is supposed to afford us all.  Therefore, when I represent you, it is important to me that you walk away knowing you received the best possible legal representation. 


My time as an Assistant District Attorney gave me the experience and knowledge necessary to defend your rights and go to trial when appropriate.  The decision to plea, negotiate or go to trial are yours and yours alone.  However, I will give you an honest assessment of the situation from an experienced trial lawyer and the law in relation to it so that your decision is an informed one.




Call our office and come in for a free initial consultation.  When you leave, I guarantee you'll know exactly where you are in the court process, and either I or my staff will answer any questions you may have about what to expect next.”
