Criminal Defense

Getting charged with a crime can be a terrible experience. You may feel embarrassed. You may feel humiliated. You may have lost your job or have been abandoned by a loved one as a result of your being charged. I know what it takes to succeed against the government in a criminal case because I worked tirelessly as a prosecuting trial attorney for almost a decade, prosecuting thousands of criminal cases. I know the ins and outs of the criminal justice system and will fight to get you the best possible resolution on your criminal case. If a trial is needed, I have battled it out in numerous trials on crimes of all magnitudes, so rest assured you will have an experienced trial attorney as your lawyer. Let a former hard-nosed prosecutor use that experience to help get you back on your feet.

What you will receive by hiring me and entrusting me with your Criminal Defense case needs:

  • You will be treated with compassion.
  • You will get vigorous representation.
  • Your phone calls and emails will be returned quickly.
  • You will not be treated like a second rate client.
  • Your constitutional rights, including your right to a fair trial will be fought for.
  • Your case will be investigated and worked on thoroughly.
  • You will be contacted when important updates arise.
  • Your case will matter to me.
