My mission is to help people that are trapped in the criminal system. Practicing in this area can be draining, but it is also very rewarding. Criminal defense attorneys guard the constitutional rights of everyone. If we allow the guilty to be punished without a good fight, the innocent will be wrongfully incarcerated.
Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute. Speak up and judge fairly; defend the rights of the poor and needy. Proverbs 31:8-9.
