You Are More Than A Case Number

Communication is integral to the attorney-client relationship. The criminal justice system can treat defendants like a number. The public and even acquaintances and colleagues may assume your guilt before you are able to defend yourself. We will take the time to understand you and the charges you face.

We treat every client with the respect he or she deserves. We know that just because you have been charged with a crime does not mean that you committed a crime. We know that you are not just a number or a plea bargain waiting to happen. If we cannot resolve your case before trial, we are not afraid to fight for you before judge and jury.

We provide representation in criminal matters involving:
