What experience or education distinguishes your lawyers from others

I believe it is not only my job to counsel each of my clients so that they understand the legal system, but it is also the way I have been practicing law my entire career. I grew up in South Dakota, the heartland of the Midwest, and was greatly influenced by my parents who taught me that a man’s reputation is built over a lifetime and can be destroyed in a split second. This has not only been the backbone of my life, but also the foundation of my criminal defense practice. My practice is built on honesty, ethics and integrity.
