MY MISSION STATEMENT: To provide the highest quality criminal defense legal representation for anyone charged with DUI or other alcohol-related driving offenses, as well as felony crimes, misdemeanors, and all other areas of criminal law.
A LITTLE BIT ABOUT HOW I THINK...
I am a man who likes to help people. It has been this compassion for others that has lead me to an interest in criminal law. Initially I was fascinated by the power struggle that I saw between people on the streets and the police. When I was younger, I simplified this struggle as a fight between those who broke the law versus those law enforcement officers who upheld the law. However, as I educated myself, I realized that there was a lot more going on. I began to understand that just because an officer had a badge, didn't mean that officer was "right" or "moral" in the ways they chose to behave.
As a prosecutor, I witnessed firsthand some of the shady, underhanded, and sometimes illegal, ways cops could behave. On the other hand, I also began to realize that "criminals" or "defendants" sometimes got the short end of the stick and were treated unfairly. I learned that many times there was another side to the story I wasn't reading in police reports. All people do things for a reason. I began to understand that some of the reasons behind these "defendants" actions made a lot of sense and their actions shouldn't be labeled "criminal."
The criminal law is fascinating because it is about people, and just because someone has done something that technically meets all the elements of a criminal offense, doesn't mean we, as a society, should lock them up and throw away the key. Cops make mistakes. People make mistakes. Mistakes are a fact of life. My goal as a criminal defense attorney is to make sure that things are done by the book, and that our personal liberties articulated in the Constitution are protected.
