Criminal Defense

I work with my criminal defense clients to make sure you understand the criminal justice process, to give you my honest opinion on the strength of the prosecutor’s case and to develop a workable defense strategy that will minimize the negative consequences.

You deserve an ethical and honest criminal defense attorney

I have experience defending clients accused of both misdemeanor and felony crimes in the state court— from misdemeanor crimes to the most serious types of felony cases.

I am proud of my reputation as an ethical criminal defense lawyer who refuses to make promises to my clients that I cannot keep. In our first consultation, I will give you my honest assessment of what I can and cannot accomplish in your case. It all depends upon the circumstances of your arrest, the evidence the prosecution and police have gathered, and the evidence they have not. I will also discuss with you the costs and fees you may incur.

What happens after an arrest? When should you hire a defense lawyer?

You should hire a criminal defense lawyer as soon as possible — even before you are arrested if you believe you are under investigation. After you are arrested and make bail, you may be assigned a public defender. If not, you should consult a criminal defense lawyer as soon as possible. Do not wait until the day before your first hearing.

The sooner you get the help of an experienced criminal defense lawyer, the more time your lawyer has to get to know you and your case and build a strong defense on your behalf.
