More often than not, the criminal justice system responds to life's struggles, whether they are mental health issues or something else in ways that make things dramatically worse rather than better. This especially true when poverty, class or marginalization come into play.

In my practice I have represented over a thousand clients from across the state of Arkansas in criminal and family law matters. My clients have faced all type of charges; including, drug possession, drug trafficking, assault, battery, theft, burglary, sexual assault, rape, fraud, robbery, homicide and many others. I have handled criminal cases ranging from traffic tickets and misdemeanors to the most serious of felonies. My client’s results included not guilty verdicts, directed verdicts, dismissals, and favorable plea deals. My criminal practice has also involved post-conviction representation and probation and parole issues; such as, probation revocation, early release from probation, and parole hearings. I have helped people seal their criminal records so that they can secure employment and enjoy many of the rights they enjoyed prior to a conviction. Guilty or innocent, I stand ready to be your voice.
