Our office has the criminal trial and litigation experience of a former federal prosecutor and state public defender. We understand how scary the criminal justice system can be. The prosecution has an advantage over the person accused of crime due to its abundance of resources to prosecute the case. Many court jurisdictions will appoint you an attorney to represent you in court through its public defender's office. Often, these are good attorneys; however, they carry heavy caseloads and are usually overworked. It is advisable to hire a private attorney who can give your case the attention it needs and, if necessary, put together the appropriate team (i.e., investigators, experts, etc.) necessary to provide you a solid defense. Although we cannot guarantee results in any matter, we can assure you that we will do everything legally and ethically permissible to reach the best outcome in your case. As criminal defense attorneys, we investigate your case and inspect every detail of the criminal offense to fight your case and protect you against injustice and mistreatment.

When you hire a criminal defense attorney, you need someone on your side who is not afraid to challenge the state or government regarding your case.  The right criminal defense attorney will have the background, experience, personality and demeanor necessary to defend your case in court.  We have experience working on both sides of the law as prosecutors and public defenders - we take those experiences and training with us as we fight to get you the best result for your case.
