In my line of practice I have learned that you definitely cannot judge a book by its cover. I often hear people say that someone is “bad” or “evil” because that person was charged with a crime. But I can tell you from firsthand experience that not everyone charged with a crime is “bad or “evil”. Most of the people that come into my office to retain me on a criminal charge are good people – they just might have made a few wrong choices. I take pride in the work that I do. I am not only here to defend my clients to the best of my ability in the courtroom, but I am also here to help them put their life back together. When you have been charged with a crime (especially if you have been falsely accused of a crime) it can be the scariest time of your life, and you need someone you can trust, and someone that will fight for you. As your attorney, I will fight for you to the best of my ability.
