A Criminal Defense Lawyer Willing To Fight For You

If you have been charged with a crime, and you just want to plead guilty and get probation, I'm probably not the lawyer you want. My office is for people who are serious about avoiding conviction and having a blot on their records.

Many of my clients have never been in any kind of legal trouble before. I assure them that I will not "plead them out" for my convenience. A plea bargain is an admission of guilt, and usually entails some form of punishment. You may not be happy about going to court, but that is often the best way to clear your name.

Experienced And Aggressive Criminal Defense Attorney

I defend clients accused of the common criminal offenses in our area:

  • DUI/DWI, first-time and repeat offenses, plus other traffic charges
  • Drug crimes: marijuana and cocaine possession, manufacturing, cultivation, trafficking and paraphernalia
  • Serious traffic offenses: reckless driving, speeding, hit and run, vehicular homicide
  • Violent crimes: homicide, assault and battery, armed robbery
  • Domestic violence and sexual assault
  • Juvenile crimes: sexual offenses, underage drinking, domestic violence, shoplifting, DUI minor
  • Sexual crimes: rape, prostitution and solicitation, child pornography
  • Property crimes: robbery, theft, petty theft, breaking and entering
  • Business crimes: fraud, embezzlement, forgery
  • Other felony and misdemeanor crimes

I have a very successful track record defending people against drug charges. Dismissal can come in the form of conditional discharge, meaning that upon completion of community service or taking anti-drug classes, the charges will be dropped. The arrest record can even be expunged at a later time.

My office is also available to help with many of the legal problems associated with criminal charges: bond hearings, administrative hearings and parole and probation hearings.

If you or a loved one needs serious representation in a criminal case, I hope you will call my office. I will listen to your story and plot a successful strategy.
