I have been a criminal defense lawyer for about 12 years, and have over 17 years experience in the legal field. Several years ago, I saw a need for attorneys knowledgeable about military law, so I added that to my practice. It is important for me to understand each client's goals and values, so that we can work closely together to achieve the best outcome. I pride myself on my legal advocacy in the courtroom and in my written work product. Furthermore, I have advanced training in negotiation and alternative dispute resolution and enjoy working with prosecutors, Commanders, and law enforcement to try to achieve a positive outcome out of court when that is appropriate.
I come from a long line of military in my family, which is perhaps why I especially enjoy fighting for my military clients, but I enjoy work with clients from all walks of life. I consider myself blessed and honored to defend the Constitution for a living. My clients appreciate that I am passionate about what I do and the fact that I am committed to fighting my cases in court, but also like that I'm respectful to them and down-to-earth. Although I credit my Duke and UW educational background for developing my legal reasoning and writing abilities, what makes me a successful attorney is my hardworking attitude and my passion for defending people who are facing their toughest legal challenges. If you have any questions about my practice and how I can help you, please call or email me. I offer a free consultation to see if I am the right lawyer for you.
