Trial Experience

I have handled all types of criminal cases, from misdemeanor charges to serious and violent felony allegations. One reason I have a successful record of winning trials and resolving cases before trial is that I am willing to work hard on behalf of my client. I know how to properly analyze the facts of the case so I can focus on the key issues that are important in the courtroom. My belief in the right to the presumption of innocence, my diligence and ability to assess what is important in a case is what wins the best results for my clients.
