Got Felony dismissed
At my preliminary hearing, my attorney got the felony dismissed. He told the Judge how the preliminary hearing is used to weed out cases that don’t merit being a felony. The Judge tossed my felony charge, it was awesome!!!! This guy was great and was ready for the hearing. I could tell he had done this before

Got my plea overturned
I got talked into a plea deal. Afterwords I realized I made a mistake. He filed a motion to have my plea withdrawn so I could take my case to trial. He layer out his case in Court and the Judge agreed.

Top notch
My attorney was awesome. He got the lady district attorney to reduce the charge. Plus if I do a program the entire case will be dismissed. This will keep it off my record which is what I really wanted. He really knew the law. I am so happy.

Only if you're white
Current on-going case. And BTW, this is a public defender. This attorney wont even respond. Last 4 court hearings, I've watched him go around to all the other white people waiting and speak to them but not a word to anyone that looks otherwise. This attorney will let the DA do whatever she wants to you without a single rebuttal. Good luck to anyone in Tuolumne County that isn't totally pasty pale white.

Victim of poor Lawyering
Five minutes before my trial, He says to me "I'm going to take it easy on this cop". Which he did, refusing to ask the questions I was telling him to ask the cop. I was convicted. He didn't do anything to protect me in my case. He let the DA walk all over me. He didn't fight to have my testimony given to the jury. If you speak out against the Calaveras government and when they come after you, do not hire this man, he will capitulate to the DA's every desire. His partner Mumbles wasn't any better.
