You were more than a lawyer. You gave me a small measure of hope that made me feel like I would come out of everything okay.
My priority is representing clients with passion and skill on complicated and serious criminal investigations. I have been involved in all aspects of criminal defense from initial investigation through trial and appeal. I represent clients charged with summary level underage drinking and disorderly conduct citations, as well as misdemeanor and major felony charges, including but not limited to attempted murder, rape, arson, conspiracy, aggravated assault, and burglary.
I have built a statewide reputation as an aggressive criminal defense attorney and I have litigated more cases than most other attorneys in our area. I have a high level of success and take pride in what I do. When I am representing you, the prosecutors know they must step up their game to prove their case.
In 25 years of practice I have argued hundreds of motions, I have attended hundreds of hearings and estimate I have tried over 100 cases to a verdict with trial experience in both State and Federal Court. Notable recent jury verdicts include complete acquittals on major felony charges of Rape, Burglary, Vehicular Homicide, Rape of a Child, Aggravated Assault, Drug Delivery, Simple Assault, Terroristic Threats, and DUI. I have had evidence suppressed in both State and Federal Court and I have resolved well over a thousand cases through plea negotiations.
