Criminal DefenseOne of my main areas of practice focuses on providing creative, zealous advocacy inside and outside the courtroom assisting individuals facing criminal charges ranging from shoplifting to murder. I also defend individuals charged with traffic related offenses, including drunk driving.

My experience includes the privilege of fulfilling the Sixth Amendment guarantee that all criminal defendants receive effective legal representation.
