Serious/violent felony trial attorney. I prep every case like a trial case to get the best results. I have successfully handled every level of criminal charge and teach other lawyers trial and DUI defense. I have taken 25+ felony cases to a jury trial. High-stakes cases need high-quality experience.
When you prepare every case like it’s a trial case, you get better results. I have taken over 50 cases to trial, and prepared thousands more. I have handled hundreds of serious or violent felony charges with high stakes, so I know what works and what doesn't, and am not intimidated by a tough situation. Prosecutors don’t give good deals to people they know will never put up a fight. There’s power in being ready for trial. Let’s use it!
As a solo firm, I give my clients and their cases the attention and personal involvement that other firms are unable to provide. I don’t pass off cases to junior associates, so when you hire me you will get me as your lawyer. Having a criminal case is scary and stressful, you need to be able to know what’s happening, not be left in the dark. My clients have my cell phone number, and when they call or text, its me who responds. I won’t make you ask a secretary permission to talk to me about your case.
Running a solo firm also means I can structure my fees around protecting the power of your right to trial. Many lawyers charge 2 or 3 times as much for a trial as for a guilty plea or they try to drop the case if the client wants a trial - I don’t think that is fair.
I enjoy fighting cases for my clients in trial, and my fees and practice encourage trial when the plea deal is not worth taking. Begging prosecutors for a deal, then giving up on a client when begging doesn’t work isn’t my style.
