I became an attorney because I believe passionately in the Constitution of this great country. If you are charged with a crime then you have rights. Period.
People died for those rights. I'm a Navy veteran myself, and I didn't spend all that time on an aircraft carrier in the Persian Gulf to live in a country where the DA just steamrolls all over American citizens.
Your rights mean nothing if you don't exercise them. I say stand on your rights.
It's never easy, but there's one thing I know for sure is that you gotta fight and fight hard. I know how to manage criminal cases. I know how to pick them apart way before we even get to court. And when we do go to trial there are few better than me.
I handle all criminal cases, including domestic violence, DUIs, drug cases, murder, robbery, you name it. I also handle domestic violence restraining orders, contempt of court proceedings, and so forth.
I hope you never have to call me, but if you do, I'll have your back all the way.
