My initial training
I began my legal career in 1977 while still a law student by interning with the local prosecutor's office. After my law school graduation I began work as a full time prosecutor and quickly moved from misdemeanor to felony prosecutions.
My Criminal Defense Experience
During my career as a prosecutor I tried many jury trials and learned how a case is put together. This experience taught me how the system worked and what I must do to protect the interests of my client and ensure the best possible outcome in his or her case.
In 1985 I left the prosecutor's office and began my own private practice as a criminal defense lawyer. I have practiced criminal law continuously since that time. I attend criminal law related seminars on a regular basis and stay current on all matters relevant to my practice.
