Claimed Lawyer Profile
Summary

I love being a lawyer, and particularly a trial lawyer. It calls upon your intellect, your integrity and your imagination to solve remarkably tough problems. There is no greater opportunity to learn about human nature and participate in the affairs of your community than to work as a trial attorney.

Criminal work is particularly fascinating. Properly done, the vigorous and ethical defense of a serious crime not only protects the client but is also a service to every citizen.
