I also represent lawyers, doctors, and other licensed professionals when they are accused of violations of their professional standards. In a free initial consultation, you can speak with me personally to find out if I am the right criminal defense or family law lawyer for you. I will work hard to bring about the best outcome on your behalf.
I enjoy an excellent reputation for my trial skills, and many of my clients have been referred to me by other attorneys. I regularly teach lawyers trial skills and court room techniques. My office focuses on a client-centered practice. If I am your attorney, you will be as actively involved in your case as you desire. I recognize that not every client wishes to go through the anxiety or stress of a trial. Even though I have been practicing for many years, I do not lose sight of the fact that for many of my clients, their case is their first experience with the legal system."
