When I moved on from the District Attorney’s Office, I had to decide whether I wanted to represent individuals or corporations. I realized that I am passionate about representing individuals so I currently represent the victims of someone else’s intentional actions or negligence in personal injury matters. In addition, I represent people accused of committing crimes. I have trial experience that is rare to find. I have tried numerous jury trials as a prosecutor, as Plaintiffs’ counsel in personal injury trials, and as a criminal defense attorney. I am as comfortable in a courtroom as any lawyer you will find.
However, most personal injury and criminal cases do not even go to a jury. While it is important to have a personal injury and criminal defense lawyer that is very good in the courtroom, it is also important to have a personal injury and criminal defense lawyer that does outstanding work outside of the courtroom. Regardless of the setting, some of my best work happens before the case gets to trial. I have successfully settled hundreds of personal injury cases resulting in reasonable and adequate compensation for my clients. Many of my criminal defense cases have resulted in outright dismissals by the prosecutor. My experience as a police officer and as a prosecutor has provided me a skill set that allows me to put together cases that encourages settlement rather than a trial.
