I have spent over 25 years assisting military members in divorces, administrative hearings, or more serious matters such as murder trials or less serious encounters with the criminal justice system. This experience along with my four years of administering seven nursing homes while the Executive Director of Veterans Affairs has supplied me with the knowledge to assist my clients with superior knowledge to navigate the criminal and civil pitfalls when a crisis occurs. I was consulted by the State legislators on the legislation that now exists to protect the rights of deployed parents to ensure their custodial rights are kept intact or transferred while deployed. I have also obtained acquittals in a murder trial and two other life sentence cases. I have also served as a prosecutor in District Attorney's office after my Active duty tour in the Army as a Judge Advocate. I continued my career in the National Guard and retired at the rank of Brigadier General.
