Thank you for reviewing my profile and considering me to represent you in your criminal defense, DUI/DWI, or personal injury case.
Choosing a lawyer is as important as picking a doctor, and I encourage you to take your time in making this potentially life altering decision. I also encourage you to contact several attorneys before you contact me so you can see the difference between their hard-selling, used car dealer approach and my honest, straightforward, no-nonsense approach.
I take great pride in obtaining the best results possible for my clients. I enjoy an excellent reputation throughout the legal community because of my legal intellect, personal integrity, professionalism, and unrelenting drive to protect my clients.
I represent clients in Tempe, Phoenix, Scottsdale, Mesa, Tempe, Maricopa County and throughout Arizona. I also work with a network of attorneys covering many practice areas, so if I cannot personally represent you, I will help you find an attorney who can.
ADVERTISING SCAM NOTICE: Many attorneys are now adding to their profiles and websites that they have been "chosen" or "selected" by organizations as being outstanding lawyers. As an example, I've been offered membership in Best Law Firms of America, Best Attorney of America, Top 40 under 40 by the American Society of Legal Advocates, Top 40 under 40 by the National Trial Lawyers, Nation's Top One Percent by National Association of Distinquished Counsel, 10 Best Attorneys for the State of Arizona in Client Satisfaction in DUI Defense, and many, many more. Membership in these organizations or acceptance of these "awards" is based solely on the payment of a fee. Do not be misled by attorneys who use these organizations or awards in their advertisements or websites. The only reputable attorney rating organizations are Super Lawyers and Martindale Hubbell.
