Helping Young Adults at a Crossroads Find The Right Path

Facing a First-Time Offense?

Let's Work Towards The Right Path

I am a criminal defense lawyer by trade, but my end goal is more than just a dismissal of the charges or a "not-guilty" verdict. I work towards the rehabilitation of young lives of people who have found themselves in the difficult position of having been charged with a crime.


Listening To You

Sometimes people are just caught in the wrong place at the wrong time, and there are also times when people make mistakes and need help correcting them.  My approach is to try to understand the whole person; not just the crime they were charged with.  I believe that by truly working to understand and rehabilitate the individual I can do two things:


  1. Help the judge and the prosecutor see them as a person and not a criminal, likely securing a better outcome
  2. Genuinely help the accused find their path towards a better future
