I have been practicing law for over 24 years. My law practice focuses on criminal defense.Example cases
I settled a nationally-publicized case in which a mother and father had left their kids alone at home while they went on a trip. Both parents were released and they did not become a public name.

I started in criminal defense because I wanted to be in court. I can't imagine sitting in an office doing research--I want to get in the thick of things, and I have fun when I'm doing it.
Before I even hear my client's story, I educate them. I explain what the law is and the elements of the criminal procedure.
No, this is unnecessary.
No, in a criminal case, I wouldn't even represent myself.
I worked for attorney Bill Glass from 1986 to 1987.
I have lived a real life and done what normal people do; I had to work my way through law school, and didn't have anything handed to me.
My clients get treated better than anyone else's.
I am down to earth, and casual but professional. I'm not here to impress with my style of clothing.
My family (my wife and son) and music.
