A Criminal Defense And Family Law Attorney You Can Trust
If you are charged with a crime or traffic violation, you are worried about the immediate penalties like jail or license suspension, and the future consequences for your employment and public life. In family matters, you may worry about your financial stability or your role in your children’s life.
I understand what is at stake and that you are relying on me for advice and protection. My decades of experience allow me to see the big picture and tailor a legal strategy for your specific situation. That begins with me taking the time to listen to your story and earn your trust.
A Thorough Examination Of The Facts
In a criminal matter, I do not necessarily accept the arrest report or traffic citation at face value. Did the police sidestep your constitutional rights? Did they jump to conclusions? Did they even ask your side of the story before making an arrest? In building your defense, I often return to the scene of the alleged crime, interview witnesses and consult with experts on police procedure. From there, I can challenge the prosecution’s case in court or evaluate your options for a negotiated outcome.
Likewise, in a divorce, my investigation might encompass a forensic accounting of the marital estate, subpoenas of bank records and tax returns, or consultations with child psychologists. Whether your family matter is resolved in or out of court, preparation and attention to the details are the key to my success.
