Let an Aggressive Former Prosecutor Defend You Against Criminal Charges

I am a former state prosecutor and assistant county prosecutor.

I have won “not guilty” verdicts for my clients in all types of criminal trials, including major felony charges such as murder, felony murder, aggravated manslaughter, armed robbery, conspiracy, drug distribution, possession of drugs, commercial bribery, aggravated sexual assault, weapons offenses, theft and numerous DWI/DUI and other drunk driving related cases.
