Protecting your rights is a priority for me in your defense. Too often our clients are presumed guilty until proved innocent, as a former prosecutor, I have experienced the in's and out's of bringing justice from the states' side, however, justice isn't always served for those who are deemed criminals. I am committed to making sure you receive a fair trial, no matter the circumstances.
