Ron is one of the hardest working and skilled lawyers that I have ever come across. I have recommended him to several of my friends and family in the last three years and with without exception they have all had the same great experience.
I have never been in any real trouble before, so I was completely stressed out when we first met. He calmed me down and listened to what I had to say. Ron then began to explain the law and what I might expect throughout the course of the case against me. He told me to leave the stress with him...I tried my very best to do that. He then went to work on the case! We met several times to review reports and consult as new developments occurred in my case. I think the greatest stress relief is knowing that you have a skilled and hard working lawyer on your side.
In the end, the case was dismissed. I cannot recommend him enough to anyone who wants an excellent lawyer!

Ron is an aggressive and compassionate criminal lawyer that prides himself on obtaining good results for his clients. He has an eye for seeing procedural and technical errors that have helped his clients cases tremendously. He is not afraid to put in the time and effort needed to ensure his clients cases are handled individually to address each cases nuisances. I highly recommend him for all types of criminal cases.
