Our Experience

You are charged with a serious crime. You need to begin immediately on your defense with an attorney that is going to work with you - and against the prosecution. You need an attorney who knows the system, the prosecutors, and the law.

I have worked at both the state and federal defender offices. I have handled murder cases, death penalty cases, three strike cases, and numerous other serious and violent felony cases. The evidence may be stacked against you. The only way to unravel the prosecution's is for you to hire a tough, aggressive, knowledgeable attorney who is not scared to fight for your rights.

Here Are Some of My Most Recent Trial Results:

Second Degree Child Murder Drug Sales
Fifteen years-to-life Seven years state prison
NOT GUILTY DISMISSED based on police misconduct (client convicted of lesser misconduct charge)

Skinhead Assault DUI w/Felony priors convictions
Twenty-one years state prison 2 years state prison
DA reconsiders and offers 16 months after police misconduct uncovered by the defense. NOT GUILTY

Police Miscunduct

As seen above, many cases can be settled or dismissed based on police misconduct. Police misconduct is a difficult thing to prove; the prosecutor will fight tooth and nail to prevent you from accessing the officer's personnel files. They want to protect their witnesses and prove your guilt. Prosecutors are political animals, and they want you to be another notch on their political belts. But success can be had - with an attorney who knows how to achieve it.

Prosecutorial Misconduct

Another avenue of defense is prosecutorial misconduct. Police are not the only people involved in your case who will commit misconduct. Prosecutors themselves will withhold evidence that could help you, and hide witnesses they know can offer you assistance in your defense. It is difficult ferreting out this information. But it is not impossible with an attorney who knows how to identify the warning signs.

I am happy to consult with you on your case. But you must start NOW. Time is of the essence. The sooner we get started, the sooner we can begin planning your defense.
