Summary

Prior to opening my own law firm, I worked for one of St. Louis' largest firms. While there, I gained valuable experience in the numerous facets of civil law, representing both plaintiffs and defendants in a wide variety of matters. I also served as a prosecuting attorney for the City of St. Louis. As a former prosecutor, I understand the intricacies of criminal law and have the experience necessary to provide effective representation during every phase of your criminal case. Whether your troubles are civil or criminal in nature, I understand the negative impact these experiences can have on your life. I am passionate about providing high quality, zealous, and affordable representation throughout the St. Louis Metropolitan Area - including the Metro East. I care about the well-being of each and every one of my clients.
