A Criminal Justice Lawyer with Integrity

It may be of some comfort to know that misdemeanor charges rarely go to trial. That is true of most felony charges, as well. Most charges are reduced or dismissed through skillful negotiations with the prosecutor.

I’m proud of my good reputation and integrity. It means I can be trusted when working out alternatives to the harsh penalties that can result from a conviction. When I come before the judge and assistant district attorneys (ADA), they are more likely to listen to my proposal.

Taking Your Case To Trial

After reviewing your criminal law case, we will determine if the ADA has enough evidence for a conviction. You can count on me to aggressively fight to keep a conviction off your record, including going to trial, if necessary.

In the criminal justice system, if you’ve been charged with a crime, especially if you didn’t commit a crime, the burden of proof is on the prosecution. They must prove their case beyond a reasonable doubt, with verifiable facts and circumstances.

Post-Sentencing Issues

Many criminal cases don’t end after initial sentencing. Individuals can find it difficult to follow probation and face motions to revoke. This can lead to severe punishments if not handled appropriately. Parole violations can also lead to severe consequences. Finally, many clients find the most lasting effect of a criminal charge or conviction is how it affects job opportunities. Convictions and even a deferred adjudication can show up on employer background checks. These public records can be expunged via an order of nondisclosure.
