This firm counsels and represents clients who have been accused of a crime from the investigation stage through all criminal proceedings at the trial level. The guilt of an accused person cannot be presumed. As such, this firm embraces one of the most sacred principles in the American criminal justice system, holding that a defendant is innocent until proven guilty. With this principle serving as the foundation of our work, this firm works tirelessly to defend clients charged with all criminal matters ranging from minor misdemeanors to the most serious felony charges. Recognizing the value of providing full-service advice to clients from day one, we sought to develop a range of complementary practices, including resolving traffic-related offenses and expungements.
