Before I begin, DO NOT ASK QUESTIONS THAT MAY INCRIMINATE YOU! IT CAN MAKE YOUR CASE WORSE! IT IS A FLAWED CONCEPT THAT YOU CAN ASK QUESTIONS ON THE INTERNET AND THAT IT WON'T BE USED AGAINST YOU. THEY CAN AND WILL TRACE YOUR IP ADDRESS. THESE RATINGS ARE PAID FOR. EXAMINE CLIENT REVIEWS NOT RATINGS.
Scroll down and view cases. Victories are the only thing that matter. If you do not win, they will not respect you and you will not get a negotiation that benefits your client. I include misdemeanor victories because your case matters to me even though the charges are small. A small charge to me is a big charge to you. I will drive a corrupt judge off the bench if necessary even if it is only a misdemeanor. By drive him off the bench, I mean he threw his hands in the air and declared a mistrial and double jeopardy attached, case dismissed. He later lost his election and is no longer a judge. You either win or you don't.
I also do not pay for my awards my industry recognition comes from the judges and colleagues with whom I practice. You can bet they recognize me.
Many criminal defense attorneys claim they are litigators. It sounds great. But litigators are those attorneys that go to trial and have gone to trial. They make their living fighting in the trenches of the legal profession. Litigators know that those clients who are not represented by those few who are familiar with the trenches, are not represented by the most capable, experienced and compelling criminal defense attorneys within the profession. There are very few real litigators. Most cases settle or resolve without litigation.
You do not have to take my word for it. I am a litigator. Evidence of my victories hangs on my wall for everyone to see for themselves. It is the only way a person hiring an attorney can know for sure that he or she is in fact hiring a litigator. I give free consultations so people may see how I present in court, how I articulate my thoughts and they can see for themselves who they are choosing to hire. Would you buy a car if they charged you money to view it? Of course not, you would think that dishonest.
I am the only one that answers my phone. I am available 24 hours a day seven days a week and if you want legal advice i will give it for free. If you like me, then you can hire me. But you won't speak to a secretary.
None of my fees are represented by this site. This site does not give me the option of explaining my fees. Call me I will give you as much information as I can, for free. I am confident you will hire me if you speak with me. Preliminary legal knowledge before you hire a lawer is paramount.
