I have a small practice centered on clients who know the value of individual service and competent legal counsel. I avoid the hype of mass marketing and focus my time and energy on clients looking for honest advice and assistance with their legal problems. The phone consultation is free because I want to make sure I am the right lawyer for your problem and want you to feel the same way.
My firm represents people accused of crimes, traffic offenses, felonies, misdemeanors, assaultive crimes, drug crimes and financial charges (embezzlement, theft, larceny, conversion, etc.). I have tried many cases to verdict and been successfully in securing acquittals and dismissal of charges prior to trial.
I also represent persons who hold state licenses such as lawyers, nurses, doctors, accountants, builders, etc when they are charged with violating the rules and ethics of their licensing board.
I have helped hundreds of applicants with obtaining their law licenses and having their licenses restored after suspension or revocation.
I help persons looking to obtain their drivers licenses after having lost it for too many points, multiple alcohol convictions, and fatal accidents.
I represent students and their families when threatened by expulsion or suspension for allegations of violations of school/institutional misconduct.
