Don't Go Down
Without a Fight

When you are first accused of or charged with a misdemeanor, felony, or reckless driving offense, there is no reason to surrender and plead guilty to the charges. You have the right to have an attorney confront your accusers, demand to examine all of the evidence that prosecutors and police claim to have, and litigate or, at your direction negotiate a more favorable outcome to the charges. Remember: you are presumed to be innocent, unless or until you are proved to be guilty, beyond a reasonable doubt.

Whether you are charged with an assault, drug possession, street racing, theft, or white-collar crime, the government must prove your case with legally sufficient evidence. In these incidents, the evidence is often voluminous and can be confusing. I will take care to scrutinize every piece and evaluate the evidence based on its merits. In addition, cases often turn on discovering if the evidence was properly obtained, or admissible into evidence or a trial.

Every case is unique and will have a different legal strategy to achieve a favorable result, such as a reduction of charges, a plea bargain, or even a dismissal. If you have been contacted or arrested by the police, it is in your best interest to have a seasoned criminal defense attorney by your side to explain the process and the charges to you.

If you give the police information that can be used against you, I strive to litigate the admissibility of admissions and have your testimony and other types of evidence suppressed. There is often no reason not to fight your charges and demand the government prove their case. Remember: Do Not Discuss your case with anyone who is not your attorney.
