About me

As a lifelong resident of the Kansas City area I share your Midwestern values. The ideas of justice and fairness.  The concept of an honest day's work for an honest day's pay.  These are the values that attracted me to the practice of criminal defense. The most crucial element of developing a successful defense strategy is honest communication with my client.
