Criminal Defense
I handle all types of criminal defense work including:

  •      Drunk driving charges and other motor vehicle offenses
  •       Drug offenses
  •       Sexual assault
  •        Domestic violence
  •        Probation violations
  •       Family Violence Education 

When accused of a crime it is vital that you seek legal help immediately. For over twelve years I have worked to help people with their criminal problems. My clients have all seen what it is like to have an attorney who does not care about them. I utilize a client focused approach to criminal defense. A person accused of a crime is not going through this in a bubble. The family of the accused is suffering also. Those who need help are often using family to pay for their defense. However, they are often in jail and helpless to lead their counsel. In my practice, I allow those in need to work with me on their defense. This allows for ownership of the results and a better understood defendant. Look below for some answered questions, but call me and talk about what is needed.

If I learn that I have been accused of a crime?
It is important that you talk to an experienced criminal defense attorney as soon as possible, before you talk to anyone else, especially the police. Nothing should be done by you until you have spoken to an experienced criminal defense attorney. The right advice depends on the facts and circumstances of each case. Prompt and timely legal advice is always the best defense against criminal charges.

What happens if I have a DUI?
Once a person has a DUI arrest, they are required to go through the entire legal process to clear their name. In some cases the person is able to avoid the stigma of a criminal record by going through aversion courses. However, these courses come with a cost, which at the moment costs approximately $200.
2. The administrative action
The use of a course in the criminal system does not end the dilemma faced by a DUI arrest. The arrest also has ramifications within the DMV, which is completely separate from the criminal action. A person can have a favorable criminal outcome and manage to salvage their good name and still loose their license in an administrative proceeding.
