In 2006, I successfully argued a motion to suppress evidence, which resulted in the dismissal of all charges in a felony drug possession case.

I offer free initial consultations (typically 1/2 hour).
I offer flat rates (fixed price) on most misdemeanor and some lower level felony cases. These rates, however, vary from case to case depending on the facts, circumstances, and exposure.
My fees are always negotiable. I also accept credit cards.
Monday through Friday
8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
I think criminal law is the most dynamic and interesting area of practice. I like being in court, and enjoy being a litigator. As a criminal defense attorney, I take pride in representing the underdog.
I think an educated client is better prepared to take an active role in defending themselves and assisting their attorney.
I am always willing to review documents prepared by a client.
I do not coach clients who want to represent themselves. On the other hand, I routinely advise people dealing with minor traffic or DMV issues that it may be more cost effective to represent themselves.
During law school, I worked as a Certified Law Student for the Sacramento District Attorney's Office for 2 years. I was also a member of the Army National Guard for 6 years. Before that, I worked several part-time jobs to help pay for my education.
My experience in handling all types of criminal cases provides me with a better understanding of complex legal issues compared to attorneys who only practice in one particular area, such as DUI.
Patience and attention to detail.
I am generally an easy going person, and I believe in giving everyone the benefit of a doubt.
My personal interests include playing competitive league basketball, music, and camping.
