What kind of lawyer do you need?

Drug Offenses

Whether you’re facing state or federal drug charges, even a minor conviction can result in the loss of your driving and professional licenses. Your right to vote, and even your freedom is at risk. Together, we can challenge the evidence against you to ensure your rights are protected now, and in the future.


DUI convictions can have severe consequences on your livelihood if you don’t take the right steps to protect yourself. Don’t let one bad decision affect your future, and your freedom. I will assess every detail of your case to minimize court fines, prevent your license from being suspended, or have your case dismissed altogether.

College and High School Crimes

Everyone makes mistakes, especially when you’re young and still in school. Unfortunately, criminal charges can threaten your current and future opportunities, even for a minor misdemeanor. Get the charges expunged from your permanent record with a pretrial intervention (PTI) program.

Traffic Violations

Minor traffic violations or reckless driving incidents can quickly add up, taking points away from your license, which can leave your license suspended. Once you hit twelve points, your license is suspended and you could be left with no means of transport, or even a job to go to. Pursue a resolution that protects your license by challenging the ticket, or negotiate a dismissal with alternative options.

Personal Injury

No matter how you’ve been injured, medical bills can put a huge strain on your income. At times like these, your health should be your first priority. So, you can count on me to seek the compensation you deserve while you focus on your recovery.

Honest, reliable, and affordable representation

Choosing the right criminal defense lawyer to represent you can make the difference between jail time, and freedom. Not only does it impact your current situation, it can have repercussions for the rest of your life if you don’t take the right steps to protect yourself.

That’s why you need an attorney to be upfront, honest, and realistic when it comes to your situation. No matter what you’re up against, I can guarantee you’ll fully understand your rights, have my undivided attention to your case, and my dedication to protect your freedom from the very start.
