Going The Extra Mile To Prepare The Strongest Possible Defense

Drunk driving - Drug charges (possession or sale of illegal drugs) - Gun charges - Violent crimes (armed robbery, murder) - White collar crimes (fraud, theft) - Sex crimes

I cannot stress this enough. DO NOT TALK TO THE POLICE WITHOUT YOUR LAWYER!

In my experience, the police do an important, but thankless, dangerous job. I have many friends who are excellent, professional law enforcement agents. However, there are a few police officers who care more about closing the case than they do about proper justice. Often, the police officer only knows one side of the story and can focus on other things when the truth is not so obvious. If you talk to the police without a lawyer, it can be an intimidating experience, and your statements can be misunderstood, or worse, misrepresented. If you have your lawyer with you, you ensure the discussion with police will remain professional and within the boundaries of the law. It does not matter if you are innocent or have committed a heinous crime, do not talk to the police without talking to your lawyer first.

A criminal conviction, much less an arrest, can alter your life and future. Whether it be for underage possession of alcohol outside of a football stadium, a self defense shooting, or a false accusation of rape, you will face a criminal justice system that rarely has sympathy for the accused. Of course, jail and prison time can be serious, but so can fines, court costs and probation terms. And that is only the beginning. A conviction can haunt you for the rest of your life, and can alter your career opportunities and lifestyle choices.

Every case is serious, and every case is different, so it is vital your attorney understands as much as possible about your case. I interview witnesses, document crime scenes, research complex legal issues, and take all necessary steps to insure the most successful resolution of your case.

Each case is unique, so success can be a dismissal of all charges, a plea agreement that minimizes penalties, or a Not Guilty verdict at trial. While I do have substantial trial experience, I know that not all cases should go to trial. I will be candid about your options, and will tailor my approach to your individual needs. When you hire me, I will always have your best interest as my number one concern.
