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.

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.

My Criminal Defense Experience

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.
