Claimed Lawyer ProfileQ&ASocial Media

A former prosecutor, I gained insight into what the government looks at when prosecuting defendants. I have successfully conducted many jury trials. From Murder to DUI I have won for my clients. Let my 25 years of trial experience work for you. My practice is primarily criminal defense oriented. Madison, St. Clair, Jersey, Macoupin, Monroe, Montgomery, Clinton, Calhoun, Fayette and Bond counties are the counties I concentrate in. Unlike other attorneys, we don't practice in other areas such as bankruptcy, collections, or small claims. We prefer to concentrate our efforts in criminal defense. This allows us to maintain a high level of reputation among the courts and prosecutors. Further, we concentrate our practice only in Southern Illinois. For the same reason - this helps our clients more successfully resolve their cases.

I founded the practice as a solo attorney. I have defended all types of felony and DUI cases. I have won Murder through DUI cases in a variety of Southern Illinois counties. I have also been very successful suing police departments for tortious police activity. I am no stranger to federal courts as I routinely file Title VII and 1983 actions.
