As a former Assistant District Attorney with more than 30 years of criminal practice experience, I know how the system works from both sides. I have the knowledge to vigorously defend my clients in all types of criminal matters, ranging from minor traffic violations and misdemeanors to the most serious felony charges in Federal or State Court.
