An Experienced Approach To Criminal Defense And Family Law

  • Beat them on the facts: The first step in any effective criminal defense is to get down to the facts of the case. In your free and completely confidential initial consultation, please be prepared to discuss the facts of your case — how the arrest happened, how you were questioned, what the police said or did. If we can beat them on the facts, chances are good that the charges will be dropped.
  • Beat them on the law: Police and prosecutors frequently make mistakes. Proving that police officers conducted an unlawful search and seizure or a traffic stop without probable cause or based on racial profiling can be enough to have charges dismissed. The law is there to protect your rights, and we will fight hard to make sure that happens.
  • Negotiate or litigate a favorable outcome: We prepare each case with the understanding that it may go to trial, even though many are settled to our clients' benefit before that point. Preparation and strength are crucial to both successful negotiation and winning at trial.
