I was a Pima County Public Defender from 1977 until 1983 and have been in private practice defending criminal cases since 1983. My practice includes all phases of criminal defense, including homicide, sex offenses, narcotics, DUI and vehicular offenses. I have handled numerous high profile offenses in southern Arizona.
You face the limitless influence and resources the government can use against you. Contrary to public opinion, appeals and post-conviction relief are usually inadequate to “fix” an injustice. Criminal defense is simply one of those things that must be done right the first time.
My approach to criminal defense is based upon a recognition of one essential fact – NOTHING is more important in your life than defending your criminal case – protecting your reputation, your assets and your freedom. When your freedom is at stake, you simply must have an attorney that will commit totally to your defense. I will vigorously assert and defend your rights. We have an outstanding reputation built on years of experience. I am the only attorney at my law firm, and I am backed by a strong staff and a network of experts. You will never be handed off to an associate or junior attorney at my office; you will have my personal attention from your first consultation all the way through to the resolution of your case. We have handled thousands of state and federal courts.
