Please describe a case(s) in the last year or two where you made a big difference.
A client was charged with attempted murder for assaulting a man who had attacked his girlfriend, some weeks before. The client was caught on camera stabbing the victim while he sat in a chair. Because of this, the client faced a 25-life minimum sentence for attempted murder. Client did not want to go to trial. Through our own investigation and intense negotiation with the district attorney, we were able to avoid trial, and secured an offer of 7 years at 50% for our client, who was very happy with the result.
How did you build a successful practice?
Mostly through word-of mouth referrals from previous clients and their family. There is nothing like the recommendation from a close friend or family member to make a new client trust you. I hope to leave every client I have with the feeling that their friends and family will be better off in my hands than in anyone else’s.
What should clients look for in a lawyer?
Someone who will spend enough one-on-one time with them and their case to really get to know them as a person. The best way to resolve a criminal case is to show the prosecution that your client is a human being, and if your lawyer does’n know you, they can’t defend you they way they should.
How important is local knowledge to the success of your cases?
Having a relationship with the prosecutor, the court staff, the judge, and the supervisors in the prosecutor’s office, where the case is filed, is an extremely important part of being able to represent your client. If you are a stranger in the room, and have no way of breaking the ice, or letting them know you are trustworthy, it will be very hard to get anyone to listen to and care about your client’s side of the story
What information can you provide in a free phone consultation?
Each conversation is different, because each client is looking for different things when they call, but hopefully, my clients gain some knowledge, peace of mind, and have answers to their questions that make the process less scary by the time our first conversation is done.
What information do you need in a free phone consultation?
It always helps to know the facts surrounding the arrest, where and when the court date will be, if the client thinks they have any defenses, or if they think the situation was fair or unfair, even if they don’t know the law, and if there were any witnesses during the arrest.
What differentiates you from other lawyers in your community?
I have spent my career building relationships with both sides of the law, and because of that, I have an army of prosecutors, law enforcement officers, and defense attorneys, as well as members of court staff, that I can call on with quick questions, or look to for insight, when I need some extra eyeballs or advice on a case.
What is the most rewarding aspect of your job?
Helping good people in terrible situations makes me feel good. I hope that people call me on their worst day and I make them feel better about the chaos that is surrounding them. As Abraham Lincoln said: “I do good, and I feel good, and that is my religion.”
