Claimed Lawyer Profile

My first trial after graduating law school was a homicide case and we achieved a not guilty verdict. Since then, our firm has achieved innumerable dismissals and acquittals. We have won cases that seem unwindable. We have won cases when clients have confessed to crimes. In one very remarkable case, one of our clients confessed to a crime and pleaded guilty with another lawyer. After coming to us for a second opinion we were able to withdraw his guilty plea, go to trial, and convince a jury of his innocence despite the fact that he confessed his guilt to the police.

We have won every type of case you could imagine. Many of our wins occur even before charges are issued - countless times we are hired immediately after a client is arrested and we are often able to convince prosecutors to drop or reduce the case before charges are ever issued. When we can't beat the case, we are usually able to negotiate a favorable settlement. Myself, and my team, work tirelessly to protect your rights. We take what we do seriously, because lives and freedom are at stake. When you read our reviews you are reading real life stories of people who have had their lives changed for the better, because of their contact with our firm.

I have spent my life working for the underdog and the less fortunate. I come from humble blue-collar roots. I spent ten years driving garbage truck, putting myself through college and law school. During law school, I moved to East Africa and spent a summer representing war crime victims in Eritrea. After law school I have spent every minute of my professional career representing my clients with diligence and care. If you choose to hire me as your lawyer, you will receive my unwavering commitment to handle your case with extraordinary effort.
