Being charged with a DUI can be a stressful situation. The collateral consequences can extend beyond jail and fines to include a license suspension, probation, therapy and more. It is important to have a skilled DUI defense attorney in your corner.
My approach to defending charges is simple: leave no stone unturned and examine the case from every angle. Case preparation comes down to the small details, which can make all the difference.
I have handled hundreds of criminal cases ranging from DUI's to thefts, assaults, driving with a suspended license, probation hearings, and deferred prosecution hearings, and may be able to help you.
After graduating from Gonzaga University, I attended Gonzaga Law School where I was selected to represent Gonzaga nationally on the Moot Court litigation team.
In my spare time, I enjoy exploring the beautiful Pacific Northwest, cheering on the Seahawks, and spending time with family. The legal process can be tricky and complex. Do not navigate the system on your own. Call today for a free consultation.
