I find that my experience as both a prosecutor and criminal defense attorney has given me the perspective and the skills to successfully litigate cases at the trial level. I have been fortunate enough to learn this job from the ground up, learning the ropes from some of the most talented lawyers that have ever practiced in this region. I am proud to be able to utilize these skills for the benefit of my clients and to teach younger lawyers what was so generously taught to me.
