Criminal Defense Practice
I have successfully represented clients in federal, state and juvenile courts in all types of criminal cases, including organized crime and serious violent felonies. No charge is too serious or too insignificant for me to take on. I handle all types of criminal matters such as:
- OUI (drunk driving)
- Assault and battery
- Drug crimes
- Marijuana possession
- Prescription pill possession
- Theft and fraud
- Sexual assault
- Violent crimes
- Vehicular homicide
- Motor vehicle offenses
- Clerk magistrate hearings
- College student crimes
- Sealing records
What I Can Do For You, Specifically
Every criminal case is different, but certain rules and principles apply to all criminal matters. If you have been charged with a crime, I will:
- Immediately work to get the charges against you dropped or lowered
- Negotiate with prosecutors to make sure you face the minimum possible penalties
- Interview police, involved parties and possible witnesses to expose mistakes, lies or exaggeration
- Make sure that no evidence against you was obtained illegally, such as through improper search and seizure
- Conduct a thorough pretrial investigation and file pretrial motions
- At trial, make the prosecutors do their job by holding the government to its burden of proof
Even if the evidence against you is strong, I will fight for your legal rights and work tirelessly to make sure you are treated fairly. I am known for going the extra mile and leaving nothing to chance: I will never be outworked, and I am not intimidated by a challenging case. I pride myself on winning cases that other lawyers have called “unwinnable.”
