How did your firm decide on the primary area of practice(s)?

My knowledge, experience and passion about the criminal justice system led me to focus my practice on criminal defense.

If you face criminal charges or if you are under investigation, understand that your freedom and reputation are at stake.

I know the criminal system from both perspectives: as a prosecutor and as a criminal defense attorney, which sets me apart from many other defense lawyers.
I am able to anticipate the prosecutors' moves and find weaknesses in their cases.
I am a tough negotiator and due to my extensive courtroom experience, I am not intimidated to go to trial.
I will explain the charges to you, listen to your version of events and investigate the charges. I will protect your rights.

When hiring an attorney, one should look beyond knowledge of the law. It is imperative to know how to negotiate with prosecutors and how to excel in the courtroom. Not every attorney has those skills. I do.
I am skilled, tough and compassionate and I look forward to representing you!
