Claimed Lawyer Profile
Summary

I practice law in the areas of criminal defense and civil litigation. Because criminal laws are so harsh, I am passionate about mitigating the consequences of my clients' contacts with the criminal justice system. Those accused of crimes need someone zealously protecting their rights from infringement and need an attorney to explain the process in a way they can understand.
