Summary

Passion for Justice - Compassion for People.

I provide criminal defenses services in Pennsylvania and military legal defense services worldwide. In addition to representing clients in state and Federal court, I represent military clients in Courts-Martial, Article 15s, Discharges and at the Board for Correction of Military Records.

In September of 2001, I was a law student at The Dickinson School of Law in Carlisle, Pennsylvania. On September 11th, I was on my way to a class on Tax Law when I heard the news that planes had hit both towers of the World Trade Center. The events of that unforgettable day prompted me to dedicate my legal studies and career to defend the freedom of all Americans.

I became an officer in the Air Force JAG Corps as soon as I graduated from law school. My passion as a JAG has always been to seek justice; no excuses and without apology. As a prosecutor, I successfully prosecuted cases that made the front page of the Air Force Times, but my true passion has always been to defend those accused of crime and ensure their rights are protected.

After serving as a prosecutor, Defense Counsel, and Senior Defense Counsel, I concluded my active duty military career as the Chief of Military Justice at the Air Force Judge Advocates General’s School. Once I realized that I had reached the pinnacle of my career as a criminal attorney in the Air Force, I knew it was time to leave active duty and pursue opportunities to fight for the rights of individual citizens.
