    Attorney Profile

    I have been involved in the criminal justice system for over 36 years.  After all that time, I still like the work of representing clients.  Everyone is human, and most of us make mistakes from time to time.  Some people even find themselves in situations beyond their control. After all these years, when I am representing a person or company under investigation or who is actually being prosecuted for an alleged crime, I make it my practice to not judge what happened.  Instead, my goal at first is to understand the situation.  Only after I completely know what happened can I then come up with a plan designed to get the best possible outcome for the person I am representing.   Sometimes we are able to negotiate a good outcome.  Sometimes our opponents are not reasonable, and we have to fight.  I do not shy away from these fights, especially when my client and his or her future is on the line. 

    I am one of the lucky ones.  I still enjoy my job, even after 36 years. Anyone who is facing criminal charges should contact my office to discuss your situation.  I look forward to hearing from you.

    White Papers

  • The Worst Kind of Client: Representing an Innocent Person Charged of a Crime (2008) - As a criminal defense attorney, I often am asked the question, “How can you represent ‘those’ people?”  I usually laugh, will make a little joke, or occasionally talk about the need to protect the rights of everyone so our own rights are there should we ever need them.  But what I rarely talk about is the single worst kind of client a criminal defense attorney can represent: the truly innocent man or woman.

  • Let's Not Make a Federal Case Out of It (2007) - While trying to stop a situation from getting overly complicated, all of us at one time or another have said something like “let’s not make a federal case out of it.”  When it comes to criminal practice, “making a federal case of it” can have extremely significant consequences for both the client and the attorney.  Some lawyers who rarely practice in federal court are shocked at the differences from state practice
