Criminal Defense

An aggressive criminal defense attorney can mean the difference between a conviction or a dismissal. 


Juvenile Defense

Consulting with an attorney experienced with juvenile matters gives your child the best chance of being released and the best chance of keeping a clean record. 


School Law

Today's schools view our children as guilty until proven innocent. Enter them with an experienced legal advocate at your side.

If you are a college student accused of sexual misconduct, you may be facing investigations that are much more aggressive and biased against the accused than the normal criminal justice system.
