Committed to Justice
When I say I’m committed to justice, what I mean to say is that I know there are two sides to every story. At a glance, someone else may believe that you’re guilty of a crime or that your ex-spouse deserves custody of your children. If so, they are probably only looking at your situation from one angle.
But I understand that there’s more to the story. You could have been in the wrong place at the wrong time, you could have a manipulative or unyielding ex, or you could be completely innocent of whatever offense you’ve been accused of. What others think is not my concern. What matters is finding the truth and doing everything in my power to help you arrive at a fair and just resolution.
Knowledgeable about the Other Side
One of the biggest advantages of working with a former cop is knowing that your lawyer is already intimately familiar with the justice system. In my time on the police force, my work primarily centered around drug crimes and crimes of violence. As a result, I am extremely adept at handling similar cases.
When it comes to non-criminal matters, I am equally adept at analyzing, anticipating, and proactively combatting the other side. In other words, whether your legal concern involves peaceful negotiations or an aggressive approach in trial, I’ll be prepared to handle it.
Unintimidated By Challenging Cases
Although my career as an officer has guided much of my work as a criminal defender, make no mistake — I am always up for a challenging case, whether or not it falls within the criminal defense realm. If it’s a divorce, for instance, a contract dispute, landlord-tenant issue, probate matter, or an entirely different issue causing you grief, I am here to help. I don’t back down from a challenge, and I certainly want to put that ferocity to work on your case if you feel you’ve been wronged.
