Being charged with a crime puts your life in the hands of a judicial system that all too often does not care about the truth - the truth of who you are, the truth of what happened, the truth of what a conviction would mean for you and your loved ones. It is an experience that is terrifying and leaves you feeling lost, powerless, and unheard.
I've dedicated my life to being a voice for the accused, because the truth is no matter the situation, you also have a story to tell and deserve to be heard. Whether that means fighting at trial to show your innocence, litigating to protect your constitutional rights, or finding a way to present you and your life to a prosecutor to obtain a favorable plea deal, I have the skills and experience necessary to guide you through the system and make sure your truth is heard.
During my years as a public defender and in private practice, I have represented thousands of clients, on cases ranging from minor traffic offenses and DUI's to homicides and sexual assaults. I have won difficult cases with not guilty verdicts at jury trials, by winning hard-fought motions issues that force a dismissal, by convincing prosecutors to drop charges through investigation and mitigating, by challenging probable cause at preliminary hearings, and by successfully litigating for post-conviction relief.
