About me

I served in the United States Marine Corps an received Honorable Discharge from the Marine in 1995. I became an attorney in 2004 and have been practicing criminal Law ever since.  I enjoy helping people navigate their way throught a legal system that many deem broken.  I am committed to understanding the clients wants and needs.
