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

As a former prosecutor, Mr. Hart prosecuted hundreds of misdemeanor and felony cases ranging from Assault to Drug cases to Homicides from arrest to trial and conviction. I'm familiar with all aspects of criminal law from both sides of the aisle. Let me put my experience to work for you.

What experience or education distinguishes your lawyers from others?

I have dedicated more than 18 years to criminal law. I fight aggressively to defend my clients and protect their rights in a criminal justice system that is stacked against them. As former prosecutor, I know what the state will use to put a criminal defendant away, and I am equipped to build strategies for stopping the state's efforts, fighting to keep you out of jail.

What distinguishes your law firm from others?

Don't trust your freedom to an overworked public defender with hundreds of cases. As a private attorney, I put in the time on each case deserves. Whether its a misdemeanor or a felony, I closely investigate each case and all evidence involved. The government has thousands of cops and prosecutors on their side, so you need a fighter on your side.
