I have over 30 years experience as a federal criminal trial and appellate lawyer, which gives me a unique perspective on what works and does not work with defending serious, complex federal charges. I prepare each case for trial, since a good result is only attainable if the lawyer is prepared and willing to go to trial. And I expect my clients to be actively involved in participating in their defense. I also have specialized expertise in American Indian Law and a law professor and Tribal Court Judge.
