Expertise and effective strategy underpins every phase of the case

When I decide to take a case, my strong commitment to the client lays the groundwork. I proceed with expert handling in all phases of the criminal justice process.

The investigative phase of representation begins the moment a client hires me. I delve into police reports, obtain forensic testimony, and identify weaknesses in the prosecution’s case. I work closely with my clients, discussing events and gathering all details pertinent to your defense. Hard work and a thorough approach open doors to uncovering vital evidence. To convict in a criminal case, the prosecution must prove that the defendant is guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. The primary role of a criminal law attorney is to unearth evidence that creates doubt and plants seeds for acquittal, while effective strategies underpin each stage of the process, from pre-trial motions through discovery, jury selection, courtroom presentation, cross-examination, and closing argument.

Equal commitment to all clients in all types of criminal cases

Whether defending a client against misdemeanor DUI (driving under the influence) charges, felony domestic violence, or juvenile crimes, the outcome of my efforts shape an individual’s life. I take my job seriously and commit to doing the very best for each client.
