I offer a free initial consultation.
I prefer to set fixed fees. My fees vary depending on the complexity of the case. Sometimes clients prefer an hourly fee or the nature of the case makes an hourly arrangement more appropriate.
My hourly rate depends on the nature of the charge and whether the case is in state or federal court.
Monday through Friday
8:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
I chose to be a criminal defense lawyer because I am passionately opposed to government encroachment into the lives and liberties of individuals.
Individuals should use the resources available to them to educate themselves about their rights in the criminal justice system.
I think it is extremely dangerous for non-lawyers to attempt to prepare their own documents in serious criminal matters.
I don't recommend that anyone represent themselves in a criminal case. The state or federal government will be represented by a skilled lawyer.
I have been engaged in the private practice of law since beginning my practice in 1977.
There is no substitute for experience. In my years of practice, I have seen just about every type of prosecution or investigation imaginable.
I believe that a criminal defense lawyer has to be skilled in mounting a defense based on the law as well as before the jury. Many times, an accused does not receive the proper outcome until the case is appealed. I have extensive experience in all phases of criminal defense.Personal interests:
My personal interests vary from outdoor activities, to computer technology, politics and professional organizations that advocate at the state and national level for the rights of individuals in the criminal justice system.
