I grew up in Indianapolis and commenced my practice at a large law firm in Lafayette, Indiana representing railroad companies. I have always been drawn toward litigation and criminal law so I transitioned my practice to becoming a more litigation forcused attorney in 2008 when I took a job with the Hamilton County Prosecutor's Office as a Deputy Prosecuting Attorney. My experience as a deputy prosecutor has led me to become extraordinarily comfortable in a courtroom setting whether the case is a civil or criminal matter.
I have extensive experience defending OWI/DUI/DWI, marijuana, drug, and major felony cases throughout Central Indiana. I have a unique perspective on these cases because I have seen them as a prosecutor and as a defense attorney.
When I am not practicing law I enjoy spending time with my family, playing golf, hunting, fishing, and cooking outdoors on my Big Green Egg.
