ATTORNEY AT LAW

After earning my law degree in 2004, I began working as a criminal prosecutor in Florida’s Thirteenth Judicial Circuit, handling a variety of cases. From DUI’s and criminal traffic violations to drug offenses and felony crimes, I picked up valuable experience inside and outside the courtroom. Now, my goal is to use that experience to defend my clients against whatever challenges they may be facing.

Can my DUI be reduced to careless driving?
Yes, a DUI conviction can be reduced to a reckless driving charge, and in some cases it can be reduced to a careless driving charge. However, that would be something where your attorney would have to investigate the case to determine if it is defendable.

You have rights. I’m here to protect them.

One of the biggest reasons I decided to focus on criminal defense is because over the years I’ve seen countless individuals face criminal charges without even being aware of what their rights are. As your criminal defense attorney, I will never allow your rights to be taken advantage of, and I’ll do everything I can to help you understand the charges you’re facing and provide you with all of the legal options you have available.

I’m committed to providing all of my clients with a strong defense, regardless of the circumstances they’re up against, because I believe that everyone has the right to defend themselves against any charge.

That means that if you’re facing something as common as a DUI, or something more serious like a drug charge or a violent offense, I’ll be right by your side through every phase of the legal process — working to provide the best possible outcome for you and your case.

I’ve seen what can happen to individuals who don’t have a competent attorney working for them. As a former law enforcement officer and criminal prosecutor, I have a detailed understanding of the criminal justice system, and I can use that knowledge to protect your rights and give you every possible chance at a successful outcome for your case.
