Criminal Law

It can be anxiety driven and unnerving to be accused of a crime. My primary objective as an attorney in this area is to protect your civil liberties and freedom. Sometimes, that means selecting a jury and going to trial, depending upon the facts and nature of the accusations. At times, it means reducing your exposure as much as possible and settling the case in the form of a plea bargain or open plea to the court. Sometimes, it involves a probation or parole situation.

Regardless, and frequently with the help of a jury, I have successfully defended many cases ranging from DWI to murder as well as other "high profile" and more serious matters.

If you have been accused of a crime, it is important to obtain legal representation as quickly as possible by an experienced attorney determined to protect your rights. In this regard, I have successfully defended clients accused of murder, aggravated assault, aggravated sexual assault of a child, aggravated robbery, burglary, possession of a controlled substance, in addition to other serious felony allegations as well as DWI or DUI involving both felony and misdemeanor charges.

In federal court, I have defended clients accused of business or white collar crimes, drug trafficking, child pornography and conspiracy.

Often times, the key in criminal law requires the fearlessness of being ready and willing to select a jury and take a matter to trial. On the other hand, if the risk regarding a case appears to project an undesirable result, it is important to have a lawyer who is well respected by the state or government attorneys.

I have had the benefit of many successful jury trials over the years and have also worked out hundreds of cases in a concerted effort to maintain my client's freedom and liberty.
