About me

When I'm not busy lawyering from 9 to 5, I am raising twin 3 year old boys with the help of my lovely wife.


My hobbies include reading almost anything non-fiction, playing chess and poker as well as playing - or should I say practicing? - the guitar and piano.

    Jamie is a true advocate. He works hard for his clients in particular and also to affect positive change in the community in general. He is particularly involved in championing the legalization of marijuana locally, and does so despite the potential negative impact such a change in law could have on his income as a criminal defense attorney. He truly excels at what he does as an advocate for the accused.
