I have practiced criminal law exclusively since 1995. During my career I have tried cases in nearly every court in the Detroit metropolitan area and other areas of the state of Michigan. I have successfully defended clients facing many different criminal charges including sex crimes, drug crimes, violent crimes such as homicide and attempted murder, assault and domestic violence, DUI/OWI, and all different types of fraud cases and other felony and misdemeanors.
Much has changed in the world since I began my law practice. With the prevalence of computers and cell phones, we have seen whole new areas of criminal law. I have experience defending people who have committed crimes using a computer, including everything from identity theft, bank fraud, or theft to terrorism and making threats over the internet.
I treat every case with the same level of professionalism. Whether you are facing a simple misdemeanor or complex felony charge, you need an experienced attorney by your side. Over the twenty three years I have practiced law, I have developed excellent relationships with prosecutors, judges and court staff.
In my practice, I also help people get their records cleared by helping them file to expunge their records or reinstate their driving privileges. If you have been convicted of a crime, it is possible in some cases to expunge your record. As an experienced attorney, I can determine whether you qualify and file the proper papers to help you get your record clean and back on the road.
As an attorney, my first priority is to give you a feeling of security, knowing you have the best representation available. I will do everything in my power to make your problem go away completely or resolve it in your best interest so it does not affect your future. I always keep my clients informed every step of the way. I understand that facing charges, going to court and standing before a judge and jury can be a very stressful experience for you and your loved ones. My role as your attorney is to defend you to the best of my ability while also helping you and your loved ones navigate the legal system.
Unlike some larger firms, we provide very personalized service. You can call or text me directly with your questions or concerns. I have several excellent attorneys who sometimes assist on cases but I am always the lead counsel in your case from beginning to end. I will never turn your case over to another attorney. In addition, my staff will keep you informed about court dates and other administrative details. I spend much of my day in court, but you can always send a text or email and someone will get back to you as soon as possible.
When I am not practicing law, I enjoy running, cooking and following my favorite sports. Born and raised on the East Coast, I am a diehard Boston Red Sox fan. I love classic rock and try to attend as many concerts as I can. I enjoy traveling with my family and especially love trying out new restaurants, cuisines and wines.
