Arrested or Accused?

           You have a Right to get the

          representation you deserve.

Proper representation is essential in all levels of criminal proceedings. The Bill of Rights provides you with essential rights when accused by the government, including the ultimate right to confront your accusers at a trial by jury of your peers. Proper representation in such matters is essential, as the effects upon the client and their families are manifestly impactful and consequential.

I have devoted my entire career to the study and practice of Criminal Defense, having represented over 10,000 individuals and businesses in proceedings at all levels and in all courts, local, state and federal. This experience ensures that your case will be carefully analyzed, legally scrutinized, investigated and prepared for trial expertly, always with your best interests and most positive result as our goal. We will employ all legal means,
integrity, advocacy, and understanding in your defense or pursuit of your damages. We fight for you!

Experience you can trust.
