Our Philosophy


The Law Comes First

Knowing the law is crucial in order to build your defense. As a board certified criminal law specialist, criminal defense is our speciality. We have focused in on one area of the law and practice it daily.  


Honest Communication

We won’t tell you everything is going to be ok, to simply keep you from worrying, only to get surprised in the courtroom. We explain everything and give you honest advice and options. 


Committed to Excellence

Nobody can guarantee you an outcome. Ever. However, we will guarantee our work ethic and dedication to your case, no matter how big or small, every case matters to us.
