I have been practicing criminal law for 35 years and DUI for 30 years. I am originally from New York, where I graduated from Harper College with a Bachelor of Arts in Economics and Syracuse University College of Law. I was admitted to the New York Bar in 1979. From 1979 through 1981 I was an associate to a sole practitioner with a criminal defense and civil trial practice in upstate New York.
In 1982 I was admitted to the Arizona Bar. From 1982 through 1989 I engaged primarily in the practice of criminal defense law, working successively in La Paz County, the Phoenix Municipal Court, and Maricopa County. I also handled civil and criminal defense matters for individual members of the Colorado River Indian Tribes.
From 1989 through 1993, I lived in New York City and was employed as an Associate General Counsel with the New York City Department of Probation. My duties there included supervision of the prosecution of probation violation proceedings in Queens, as well as representing the Department on civil and criminal motions and appeals in various courts located throughout the city.
Since 1994 I have focused on criminal and DUI defense in Phoenix, and in that time period represented over 4000 clients and conducted 100s of jury trials.
