Winning Verdicts

My job as your attorney is to aggressively fight for your rights and to resolve your case to the best of my abilities, and hopefully to your satisfaction.  While no defendant ever WANTS to go to trial, in some cases, for a number of reasons, going to trial is the only option.  An attorney's track record, especially their criminal defense trial victories, and in particular, felonies, is something you want to consider when making that very important decision of hiring an attorney. 

I've tried serious crimes from serious drug sales cases, burglary with assault or battery, home invasion robbery, armed robbery, attempted murder, along with serious sex charges, including capital sexual battery cases.  Below is a sampling of verifiable trial victories.
