What Is My Process like as a Lawyer?

  • I will sit down and discuss every aspect of your case with you from the investigation to the arrest in order to evaluate whether your rights were infringed upon in any way.

  • As a former prosecutor, I know exactly what to look for in the prosecution's case that may be considered a weakness and then I attack it.

  • I truly believe in providing only the highest quality representation to my clients by ensuring that they receive a fair trial.

  • I am not afraid to aggressively challenge evidence and police reports.
