For as long as I can remember, I always wanted to be a criminal defense lawyer. I believe all patriotic Americans have a duty to stop oppressive and overbearing actions by the police and/or the government. The price of liberty and freedom is eternal vigilance. Also, standing against the immense power of the State with just my client and I in opposition has always appealed to me, as it should to anyone that has ever been falsely accused by those in positions of authority. To truly be a zealous advocate for his/her clients, an attorney must do certain things, with the first being to uphold his/her sworn word to be a zealous advocate.

To achieve successful results for a client, one must actually like clients, get to know the clients and the facts of the case. I pride myself on always returning client's calls, unlike most lawyers. I also file the motion necessary to achieve successful results which many other criminal defense lawyers do not do, While I cannot, (nor can anyone else make this promise), promise you successful results, I can promise you I will truly try to help you and your case.
