“A criminal prosecution is one of the most stressful times of your life. You are entitled to the best defense possible and an accessible, responsive and understanding attorney. That’s what I strive to be. My philosophy is simple:”
“I try to be the attorney that I would want to go to.”

Don’t Face Serious Legal Charges Without Proper Representation.
You likely know that if you’re facing criminal charges, you have the right to a lawyer. You also probably know that the government can appoint a lawyer for you who will represent you for free. These attorneys are called “public defenders.”
Public defenders spend an average of seven minutes on a case before facing a judge.
While public defenders have a vital job, they are simply overloaded with cases. Seven minutes isn’t nearly enough time to give a client the attention and care they deserve.
That’s why so many people facing criminal charges opt to hire their own misdemeanor or felony attorney.

Criminal charges bring extreme uncertainty and difficulty into your life. This is why I maintain an “artisan” practice where I see a limited number of clients. My clients get my time and I customize my service for each of my clients. I respect those differences and you’ll find that I deliver a level of accessibility that is rare among attorneys today.
