In A Nation Founded On

The Rule Of Law...
You are innocent until proven guilty. Your rights, whether in the courtroom or a boardroom should be vigorously defended. From defending your freedom in a criminal case, to fighting for your rights in a personal injury matter, to guarding your position in a complex corporate negotiation... you have a right to the most experienced attorney you can retain. You have a right to have your case heard. It would be my great pleasure to serve you whenever you are in need of such services.

Concentrating On
Personal Injury, DWI & Criminal Law

Criminal Law
Being charged with any crime is a serious matter.
You have rights and in many cases they have already been violated before you even get to jail.

I have successfully represented people in Federal, State and Municipal Courts for more than 30 years.

Why pay somebody just to take your money and plead you guilty? You deserve a lawyer who will fight for you. I am willing and able to take your case to trial. If that is what you decide is best for you, I will try your case, not try and talk you into pleading guilty.

Some Types of Cases I Have Handled:

Murder, Rape, Robbery, Kidnapping, Arson, Drug Sales, Possession of Marijuana, Meth, Cocaine, Heroin, Manufacturing Controlled Substances, Possession with Intent to Distribute, White Collar Crimes, Assault, Burglary, Manslaughter and others.

DWI Defense

Any lawyer can handle a DWI case. Not all lawyers handle them well. It takes knowledge and experience to properly handle a DWI case and get good results. I’ve handled DWI cases for over 30 years. In those years I’ve learned the importance of listening to the client . Many times the police report just can’t be true. But the prosecutor will believe it. You need a lawyer who believes you.

There is a lot to do right after a person gets a DWI. It is important to get to a lawyer as soon as possible. Time is on the side of the police and prosecutor. So don’t wait. Call as soon as possible and make an appointment. I will make every effort to see you within 48 hours of your call . Together we can begin to work on your case.

It may help for me to go to the scene of your DWI. You may have witnesses I need to interview. There is a lot to be learned about your case. It pays to get started right away.

A DWI can cost you increased insurance rates, loss of driving privileges and even jail.

If you have a DWI you need to be well informed about the law. I’ll do that for you.

Injury Cases
Insurance Companies have gotten so arrogant in recent years that they think they can get away with whatever they want.

Some Types of Cases I have handled include:

Auto Accidents
Defective Products
Dangerous Ladders
LP Gas Explosions
Medical Malpractice
Negligent Product Design
Dangerous Property
Defectively Designed Medical Implants
Negligent Surgeries
Wrongful Death Cases
Negligent Highway Design
Negligent Maintenance of
Hotel Rooms
Dangerous Bathtubs
Failure to Warn Cases
Defective Stair Design
Slip/Fall & Negligent Property

Accidental injuries result in over 30 million emergency room visits each year. More than 90,000 people die each year from unintentional injuries. More than 3 million people are injured in motor vehicle accidents each year. More than 40,000 people die each year as a result of these accidents. You aren’t alone. Call Me Now.

Don’t let the Insurance Adjuster add insult to your injury!
You have legal rights...
We need to protect them!

Highlighted Achievements:

Won a $1.2 million jury verdict in a defective highway design case, arising from a vehicular accident in which a car crossed the center line, became airborne, and landed on the opposing side, killing a mother, and seriously injuring a father. *

Provided a pro bono defense for the alleged kidnappers of a Planned Parenthood physician demanding immediate action from the President of the United States. This case garnered national media coverage.
