Criminal Defense That
Students And Others Can Count On
Mistakes happen, but they don’t have to define your whole life. If you’ve been charged with a crime, such as domestic assault or domestic violence, possession of drugs, theft or open container, I will fight to protect your future. I believe that a successful defense should be unique to the person – and the situation – it is protecting. Because of that, I will take the time to get to know you so I can create a holistic and thorough strategy for your defense.
If you’ve been charged with a crime as a college student, your future could be in jeopardy. I will do everything in my power to protect you so you can continue to flourish and begin the next stage of your life.
