Effective, Experienced, and Ethical Criminal Defense

A Strategic Approach to Your Defense

I will design a unique plan of action tailored specifically to your circumstances, needs, and goals. For every case, however, I work simultaneously to:

  1. Prepare for trial: I prepared every case as if it will go to trial. Effective in front of a judge or jury, I have been named one of the Top 100 Trial Lawyers every year since 2014 by the National Trial Lawyers Association. My reputation as a skilled trial attorney is beneficial to clients whether or not their cases go to trial. Prosecutors know I will not back down until my clients are satisfied with the outcome.
  2. Be ready for resolution: Sometimes a fair and reasonable resolution outside of court is in my client’s best interest. I make certain that we are prepared to exercise this option as appropriate. Preparing for settlement may mean obtaining a mental health evaluation for a client in advance of the court’s request or compiling statements from those who can testify to his or her positive qualities.
