Thanks to my more than 40 years of criminal law work, I possess a unique understanding of the criminal justice system, and can often obtain a victory where a less experienced or well-trained lawyer might not. Recognizing that my client is the most important aspect of every case, I strive to get to know each individual on a deeper level while investing the utmost preparation, commitment, and hard work.

Whether you need federal bank fraud assistance or a California drunk driving defense lawyer, I am ready to defend you.
