Summary

ANY COURT. ANY CRIME. ANY TIME. I have been involved with the field of criminal law for over forty years. As a criminal defense lawyer, your freedom and your rights are my first priority. I focus my efforts to provide my clients the best defense possible given the facts and proofs that the State is using to try to convict them. I have handled cases involving Leader of Drug Trafficking Network; Racketeering; Official Misconduct; Domestic Violence; Drug Possession and Distribution; Assault; Homicide; Theft; Robbery; Carjacking; Insurance Fraud; Kidnapping; Rape and Sexual Offenses; Arson; Criminal Mischief; Bribery; Perjury; and Weapons related cases. My unique law-enforcement background and experience provides my clients with the benefit of being represented by a criminal defense lawyer with personal experience in how a criminal case is investigated, prosecuted and most importantly for his clients, defended. I bring that knowledge and experience to each case and client I represent as a criminal defense lawyer. Before becoming a Criminal Defense Attorney, I was a Police Officer and a Prosecutor's Investigator for ten years and an Assistant Essex County (N.J.) Prosecutor for fifteen years. I have handled cases using every type of investigation used by the police, to include wiretapping; undercover police investigations; and, more traditional investigation activities such as field investigation and witness interview. My goal in defending my clients, is to protect their rights and their freedom. I pursue every viable alternative to impact the strength of the State's case, and to develop a strong defense on behalf of my client. I am ready to defend you.
