A DUI CAN HAVE AN ADVERSE AFFECT ON YOUR DRIVING RECORD AND YOUR LIFE. IT CAN LEAD TO JAIL TIME, A HIGH FINE, AND A SUSPENSION OR REVOCATION OF YOUR DRIVING PRIVILEGES. FOR OVER 23 YEARS I HAVE HAD GREAT SUCCESS IN HELPING MY CLIENTS AVOID A SUSPENSION, AVOID JAIL, AND KEEP THEIR RECORD CLEAN.

OUR CORONAVIRUS RESPONSE


We are committed to protecting the health and safety of our clients by offering complementary video
consultations and appearing in court on your behalf without the need for you to go to court (varies by case).

 

Since 2001, my practice has focused mainly on litigation. I have successfully handled thousands of cases in the areas of Criminal, Traffic, CDL, DUI defense, and Personal Injury cases. 

Whether I'm representing a client facing a petty traffic offense, the most serious of criminal charges, or a serious injury case,  my philosophy always remains the same:

My client comes first.

I understand that having to appear in a courtroom to face any type of charge can be an intimidating and frightening experience. That is why from the very beginning of every case, I strive to provide every client with proper legal guidance, so he or she will know what to expect every step of the way. I take an aggressive approach in preparing a customized defense strategy in order to obtain the best possible outcome.
