Whatever The Charges, I Can Help

I have devoted most of my career to defending the accused. No matter how bad things may seem, I can capably challenge any criminal allegations.

Sex Crimes

A sex crime conviction can be a stumbling block that stays with you for the rest of your life. Crimes such as child rape, child molestation, rape, indecent liberties, or communication with a minor for immoral purposes are punished severely by the prosecutor on public demand. You could be sentenced up to life in prison for some offenses. Sex offender registration requirements may adversely affect your family, work, and social life.

There is a strong presumption that an accuser is always telling the truth. In reality, there are other influences such as parental or teacher suggestions in allegations involving children. Oftentimes, accusers are motivated by money, malice, or revenge. Based on this complexity of factors, you need an aggressive attorney who will leave no stone unturned. I will evaluate all individuals involved and the nature of their involvement, as well as the extent of their relationship with the accused. My approach to sex crime defense has achieved favorable results.

Violent Crimes

Since crimes of violence involve heavy sentences, you need an experienced and aggressive attorney to counter the prosecutor, who will seek to convict on charges that are more severe than the facts would support. I evaluate the prosecution’s facts for omissions, falsehoods, exaggerations, and partiality. I seek to bring out the “truth” to help my client prevail.

I use the above plan of attack in violent crimes ranging from domestic violence and harassment to assault with a deadly weapon and murder. Whenever relevant, I use cellphone and computer analysis to destroy an accuser’s credibility or verify the account of a witness for the defense.

Drug Crimes And Property Crimes

I treat drug and property crimes with a comprehensive and rigorous style to cast serious doubt on the prosecutor’s theory of the case. I look for prosecutorial weaknesses and then exploit those for the benefit of my clients.

Prosecutors rely on specific indicators to bring charges such as theft, burglary, fraud, robbery, possession of drugs, possession of drugs with intent to deliver, or the manufacturing of drugs. I scrutinize these indicators to determine the manipulation of evidence, the credibility of witnesses, and inconsistencies regarding time, distance, and testimonial statements. This is how I get to the “truth” in defending you against the charges.

Theft, Identity Theft, And Burglary

With technology and drug use growing at an alarming rate, the above-noted crimes are correspondingly increasing. Penalties are also being enhanced. I can negotiate for a plea that may include drug treatment and significantly reduced jail time. Existing crimes may also be amended to lesser crimes. I do not want you to repeat crimes; you deserve a chance to change and improve your life. I will help you break the cycle of committing a crime to support a habit that represents another crime.
