More and more people are asking the question, "Why hire an attorney for many legal matters?" In some cases where the public feels comfortable, some legal matters can be handled in a less formal way. However, involvement in the criminal justice system can have some very serious consequences to your future.

As a result of having been arrested or indicted, many of your personal freedoms have already been placed in jeopardy. You may have experienced a search and seizure of personal property, spent time in jail, been questioned by law enforcement agents and been ordered to appear in court. Your reputation, your whereabouts and your freedom are now under the control of the court. You need to have someone represent and defend your rights.

My philosophy is to respond quickly and aggressively to any criminal charges. Your liberty is at stake and I won’t hesitate to use every available resource to defend you.
