Experience You Can Trust

I have over 15 years of experience in criminal defense fighting for justice and for the rights of good people who find themselves in trouble. I am committed to give your case the time it deserves and to help you every step of the way by:

  • Discussing your case with the District Attorney before charges are filed to avoid criminal court.
  • Preparing the strongest defense, tailored to your specific situation and special needs.
  • Negotiating the best results in your case.
  • Guiding you through the court system and always keeping you informed of the process.

Dedication You Can Depend On

Your case matters to me because it is important to you. A criminal conviction can have serious consequences for you now and in the future. It can result in jail or prison time, as well as heavy court fines. It can also keep you from receiving financial aid for college, interfere with your career goals and employment opportunities, and even prevent you from finding housing. I am dedicated to providing high-quality legal representation and individualized service so that your rights and your future are protected. I take the time to know you and the details of your situation so that we explore all options and obtain the best possible results. I offer flexible hours and reasonable fees, and payment plans so that you can have peace of mind during this stressful time.
