Accused of a crime? You need a fighter at your side: I started my career to “Fight the Power.” to stand strong for all clients who need a powerful voice to speak on their behalf. I began practicing in 1992 and handled trials immediately. Because most of my career has been spent at the Office of Public Defender, I have extensive experience, having handled thousands of cases of all types. I have handled over 200 jury trials to verdict.


My work as a criminal attorney affords me considerable insight into the criminal justice system.
