Jack, a graduate of ASU Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law, has devoted his entire career to honing his trial and litigation skills. He started in private practice, then went to work at Maricopa County Public Defender’s office where he handled cases ranging from assault, drug trafficking, white collar, dangerous crimes, sex crimes, and homicides.
Throughout his experiences, Jack recognized not only his passion for litigation but also for fighting for the underdog—those who have everything stacked against them when their liberty is at stake. Jack believes there are two sides to every story and that everyone is entitled to have their story told and their constitutional rights protected regardless of race, gender, or class. No matter the situation Jack believes everyone is entitled to the best representation possible.
Jack’s passion for trial work and litigation, along with his dedication to his clients, has led to numerous not guilty verdicts and well over 100 dismissals including major felony cases where he investigated and litigated the issues.
