Being arrested or charged with a crime is a stressful time, especially if it is your first experience with the criminal justice system. Each client has his or her own concerns and priorities. We will work to find a solution that best meets the needs of your case— whether that means challenging the legal grounds for your charge, resolving the case quickly with as light a punishment as possible, or presenting the evidence in a trial. You have the right to a fair trial where prosecutors must prove all elements of every charge, beyond a reasonable doubt.
I know that good people can make mistakes and false accusations are often made. There is a lot at stake and you deserve to be treated with dignity and care. I understand that a criminal record will follow you as you make your way in life--it’s necessary to keep that record as clean as possible in order to have all doors open in the future.
I'll advocate for you at pre-trial. If a resolution can’t be reached, we will leave no stone unturned in preparing the best defense. When I’m working as your lawyer, you will be more than a case file or number in the system. I will patiently answer your questions and return your calls.
I graduated from Vanderbilt University (B.A.) and Baylor Law School. I'm a former prosecutor and love being in the courtroom. This job is a good fit for me because I believe we have a duty to take care of each other and the world we live in.
A free initial consult is our time to meet each other. You may ask any questions you have about your charge and what legal penalties you may be facing.
Meeting in person is the best way to see what is needed for your case. Let's get started and move toward a solution.
