Summary

I have been a NBTA Board certified criminal law specialist since 1984, and concentrate in the areas of white-collar criminal defense and defense of serous crimes that include DUI charges. I have represented lawyers, businness men and woman, mayors, corporations, politicians, doctors and others for over thirty seven years. I am also a former prosecutor. In 2014 Super Lawyers lists me as one of the top 10 lawyers in the State, and I am the only criminal lawyer in the State on that exclusive list. I served on the board of NACDL for 9 years, and am former president of ACDLA. I have tried over 200 cases in State and Federal courts, and have been AV rated by ABA for over 20 years. I am the author of "Quest for Justice; Defending the Damned."
