You Are More Than A Case Number

Communication is integral to the attorney-client relationship. The criminal justice system can treat defendants like a number. The public, and even acquaintances and colleagues, may assume your guilt before you are able to defend yourself. We will take the time to understand you and why you are facing criminal charges.

We will put your charges in context and get a complete picture of your situation.

We know that you are not just a number or a plea bargain waiting to happen. If we cannot resolve your case before trial, we will give you the chance to tell your story persuasively before a jury.
