For over three decades my career has been dedicated to representing those falsely accused of child molestation against the unfair systems that we have in this field. My dream is to form a team of the best and brightest attorneys to carry on with this work to which I have dedicated my career. I was involved as a Chemical Engineer with computers since the days of punch cards and realize that high technology is the only way for us to compete against the well funded and well staffed police and prosecution units. The solution is the fusion of the best and brightest criminal defense attorneys with high technology. As their coach I will pass on the knowledge I have gained over the past three decades to the next generation of all stars.
