I have exclusively practiced criminal law since 2005. I have a thorough understanding of criminal law and the court process. I have been lead counsel in over 100 criminal jury and bench trials, as well as first appearance/preliminary hearings, arraignments, and motion to suppress hearings. My extensive experience has made me into a highly skilled trial attorney and these skills are proven by my impressive track record of success. I have represented clients on a wide range of criminal cases. My representation has resulted in numerous dismissals prior to trial and acquittals on behalf of my clients.
I graduated cum laude from Thomas M. Cooley Law School in Lansing, Michigan. During law school, I received seven Certificates of Merit in Civil Procedure I and II, Torts II, Wills, Trusts, & Estates, Federal Administrative Law, Law Practice, and Advanced Writing. I was an Honors Scholarship recipient and was nominated for the Distinguished Student Award and Outstanding Student for Clinical Legal Education Association Award. During law school, I interned for over a year in the Thomas M. Cooley Innocence Project, which is dedicated to exonerating wrongfully convicted people through DNA testing and reforming the criminal justice system to prevent future injustice.
My time interning with the Innocence Project and the experiences I have had as a practicing attorney have caused me to take a special interest in the wrongfully accused or those who have been victimized by the judicial system. If you or someone you know is going through the criminal process and wishes to exercise your constitutional rights, call me so that together we can make sure the system works for you.
