Former prosecutor w/ extensive trial experience who now fights to protect the accused.
I began my legal career at the DA's Office and ventured into private practice after spending almost 5 years as a prosecutor. I have tried all types of cases ranging from DWI's and misdemeanor thefts to aggravated assault and sexual assaults and everything in between.
My experience as a prosecutor makes me incredibly strong as a defense attorney for a few different reasons. First and foremost, I can and will give every client an honest and realistic picture of what they're facing with each case. I know what prosecutors are willing to offer and what they are not. I know how to creatively present our case to receive plea deals other attorneys might not know to ask for, and I also know when you don't stand a chance of getting a deal other attorneys might falsely promise. When you work with me you know exactly where you stand and what you face.
Second, I have worked with some of the best police officers in the state and I know what police work is supposed to look like. That means I know how to evaluate every case for holes and corners that were cut that can mean a weaker case for the prosecution and a better chance at aquital for my clients.
Finally, because I was a prosecutor, I have the trial experience necessary to be incredibly effective in the courtroom. I'm not scared to take a case to trial and fight tooth and nail for my clients. Some attorneys will overcharge for trial fees because at the end of the day they're not comfortable in the courtroom, but I am in my element when I'm in trial and so I'll never discourage you from a jury trial if that is what is best for your case.
More than anything, I'm an advocate. My clients know without any doubt that I am on their side every step of the way. Facing criminal charges is extremely terrifying but we are in it together.
