I choose to defend those who are being prosecuted because ultimately, I believe in you. Whether you are innocent or guilty of the charges being pursued against you by the Government, I believe that you are more than the person who is reflected in a criminal complaint. The role of a good defense attorney is to ensure that your side of the story is told, that your character and good acts are not forgotten, and that ultimately you are given the consideration and justice you deserve.
