Criminal Defense & DUI Lawyer

Hands in handcuffs on the table

Knowing your rights is crucial!

If you are being questioned by law enforcement or are charged with a crime, you need an advocate to protect your civil liberties and be certain the system functions fairly. Having criminal charges brought against you can be stressful. Not knowing your rights can be devastating. If you have been questioned or arrested, do not delay in contacting me. As your attorney I will be sure your case is investigated and review it to determine what your defenses are and whether there are grounds for dismissal or suppression of evidence. If your case does not get dismissed, I will advocate for you and negotiate with the government for a reduction in your charge. I will also advocate for a fair consequence. If you chose to exercise your right to a jury trial, I will present your case and your defenses to a jury.
