Criminal Defense & Appeals


Defend with the best.  A good criminal defense attorney connects with his clients and is aggressive with his opponent.  There must be some purpose to the actions of the attorney, however.  Each aggressive action must have a strategic necessity to help win the matter at hand.  

Pick the attorney that operates in a smart way.  Criminal defense is a thinking person’s game, and is best handled by an attorney who studies the law, knows the angles, tells you the truth, and is able to plan for the best result.

Criminal defense requires being strategic in an uncertain environment. 

A good defense attorney knows how to operate in a chaotic environment.  That’s why we not only have a plan, we execute that plan with focus and diligence.  The reality in a criminal case is that a defendant is always presented with uncertainty.

We are hear to make clear the uncertainty that comes with each criminal case.  Whether a judge is fair or not; whether a plea deal is good or bad; whether to pick a judge or a jury for trial; or whether to present a witness who might be hostile to the case – all of these questions, and more, need to be answered.

We have helped hundreds of clients answer these same questions; all with an eye towards producing the best result possible.


Win by planning and communication. 

A person charged with a crime has to have a plan.  With us, you have an attorney that creates that plan an communicates to you the successes and setbacks in that plan.  When there comes a time for a decision, you have a partner that you can talk to.

That’s why your attorney has to be accessible and communicative.  We return phone calls and emails.  We talk to our clients.  We help them understand what’s going on at each stage of the case, so that they can be as informed as possible, and make the best decisions possible.  By having a plan and being communicative, we have the best chance to win.
