Biography

I grew up throughout the Southeastern United States. I attended college at Furman University in Greenville, South Carolina and I graduated with a B.A. in political science and philosophy. I moved to Minnesota in 1999 to attend the University of Minnesota law school and I decided stay after I graduated. Following graduation, I clerked for a Hennepin County Judge and then took a job with the Stearns County Public Defender's Office. I have been in private practice since 2016.

My practice involves representing people charged with crimes as well as individuals dealing with issues surrounding Orders for Protection and Harassment Restraining Orders - both petitioners and respondents. I am here to help with the collateral consequences as well including, but not limited to, driver's license revocations, motor vehicle forfeiture, employment concerns and more. Please contact me and I am available for a free consultation regarding whatever legal issues you might be facing.

Legal Answers
Q. What are consumer rights regarding illegal items in a repossessed vehicle?
A: The repossession company has no obligation keep illegal items found in a repossessed vehicle private. They should and will likely turn over any illegal items found in the vehicle over to law enforcement. I would presume that the individual would then be charged with possession for those items that were located in the vehicle.
Q. My son was killed by a 16 year old driver, who is only being charged with FAILURE TO MAINTAIN A SINGLE LANE violation.
A: There is nothing you can do for force the county attorney to charge out any particular offense. You can certainly voice your opinions on what you believe should occur in the case, but ultimately, the County Attorney has the ultimate authority of what, if anything, to charge out in this case.
Q. GM 5th deg-possession of drug, first timer, and I was wondering if I’m serving jail time or how much would I have to pay
A: I think that it is unlikely that you would be facing jail time for a first time GM drug possession case. The best thing that you can do for yourself to avoid having to serve jail would be to get a Chemical Use Assessment and start following the recommendations. That is something that you are likely going to have to do any way if you are convicted and you might as well be proactive to help minimize any likelihood that you would have to serve jail time. It will also serve to minimize the likelihood that you would have to paid significant fines.
