Summary

I have been practicing law in Pensacola and surrounding areas for twenty-eight years. My legal expertise is the result of having tried more than one hundred jury trials. My defense method has procured proven case results due to hundreds of dismissals, not guilty verdicts and my 87% trial success rate. One of my cases achieved national attention and was featured on CNN and CourtTV. My extensive experience is the result of many years, both, representing and defending many types of legal actions.

Every county and courthouse has its own way of doing things. Based on my experience and diverse involvement in the legal community, I have inside knowledge and opportunity which routinely provides face to face access to judges and prosecutors. Throughout my career, I have developed trusting relationships with judges, prosecutors and court staff. These connections have taught me the most effective ways to successfully defend your legal matter.

If you or someone you know has been accused or arrested for a crime, there is a great need for experienced legal advise from a dependable criminal defense attorney. Hiring the right attorney is the most important decision you will make. Who you choose can make all the difference in the outcome of your case. Allow me the opportunity to guide you through the complexities of your legal situation. I provide my clients with personalized service, effective legal representation and positive results.
