Great Trial Attorney and Very Skilled, But Sometimes Hard to Get Ahold of.
Very good lawyer. Fought hard for what I needed. I went to trial on an attempted murder case and he walked me right out that court room! Got not guilty verdicts in 2 hours. I was very impressed with him in trial. He is in court often and sometimes hard to contact, but I respect the fact that when it was my turn his focus was strictly on me. He will work out a deal with you so you do not have to pay it all upfront, and I found his price and rate to be fair. I am still paying him off after two years, but it was a big case. I would recommend him to any person, especially on those cases that carry a lot of prison. Just expect not to speak with him twice a week. I would recommend setting up appointments with him. That is what my wife had to do to meet with him, since I was in jail and since he couldn't be out there every week.
