Philosophy

Having personally weathered representation by criminal defense attorneys, I have come to appreciate, first-hand, the importance of a team which not only zealously advocates for its clients but which also intimately understands the day-to-day realities of being accused of life-changing allegations. In addition to lending a profoundly empathetic ear to the experiences and concerns of our firm’s clients, I am also committed to using my years of complex negotiation experience to devise creative solutions and search for novel strategies to favorably resolve cases.
