My ONLY Focus As A Criminal Lawyer: Criminal Defense and DUI Law
Since I only handle Criminal Defense cases, my focus is entirely on being the best lawyer possible in that specific field. This narrow area of practice helps me stay keenly aware of changes to the law so I can use the best strategy in your case, combined with my knowledge and experience, to get the best result possible through smart and aggressive representation.
Criminal Defense Requires Knowledge, Experience, and Aggressiveness
I am not a criminal attorney who is content to sit and wait for something to happen. The government prosecutors have virtually unlimited resources and their job is to convict the defendant as charged. You need an attorney that will work tirelessly to insulate your liberty, protect your freedom, and restore your life and livelihood.
