I have been fortunate to have known Avery for nearly 20 years. As a practicing lawyer, I have met many criminal defense attorneys, Avery’s knowledge, compassion and willingness to serve his clients makes him the greatest criminal defense attorney I know. Through the years I have referred many clients to Avery for criminal representation. I know that a referral means that my name is associated with the other attorney. I know Avery will provide all of his clients with a vigorous knowledgeable defense. A factor I look for in criminal lawyers is their availability, it is critical. Some lawyers don’t make time in their day for their clients. Avery is unlike these stereotypical lawyers, Avery he is a very down to earth guy; Avery is easy to feel comfortable around, open up to and work with. Avery partners with his clients, develops an action plan and encourages his clients to help them help themselves. I believe that Avery has a true calling for being criminal attorney.
