For my clients there is no such thing as a minor criminal charge. I know that any criminal conviction can have serious consequences on your job, your home life and your future. As a criminal defense attorney with more than two decades of experience, I have seen this first hand.

During my time as a prosecutor, I was deeply troubled by the damage a criminal conviction can have on an individual and his or her family. That is why I chose to go into private practice as a criminal defense attorney after leaving the prosecutor's office. I am committed to providing passionate, effective and aggressive representation for anyone charged with a crime.
