Claimed Lawyer ProfileQ&ALII GoldSocial Media

I am an experienced DUI and criminal defense Lawyer, and I have successfully represented clients throughout Nevada, Placer and Sierra counties for diverse cases including Driving Under the Influence (DUI), Drug Possession/Sales, Domestic Violence, Vehicular Manslaughter and Sexual Assault since 1999. For examples of cases, check out my website at MY LOCAL CONTACTS HELP YOU!

In addition, as a Truckee Lawyer I have represented numerous clients in DMV Administrative Suspension Hearings, Probation and Parole Violation Hearings, Setting aside Convictions, and Reduction of Felonies to Misdemeanors.

I am passionate about responsible and legal use of medical marijuana and strongly and fairly representing those who have been harshly punished by past marijuana laws and the legal system. If you have been persecuted for felony possession, sales or production, I may be able to reduce your charges to misdemeanors or remove them from your record altogether. As your local attorney here in Truckee, I’m here to help.

My office is located in downtown Truckee, just blocks away from the courthouse. Hiring local counsel is a benefit to you!

Legal Answers
Q. accused of a crime I was not involved in. Discovery states a different discription of a vehicle. I get pulled over.
A: Make sure you have a lawyer to file a suppression motion. A private attorney or a public defender can help with that. Do not try to represent yourself.
Q. I have search and seizure can officer just come up to me and search me at any time without probable cause
A: Valid search terms allow an officer to search an individual any time, any where, with or without cause. If the officer ran your license plate and you matched the description of the registered owner that could be valid. Whether or not that happened would be an issue to look further into.
Q. What to do if someone you know steals everything you own?
A: I suggest filing a follow up police report regarding the theft.
