I chose to make criminal defense a part of my law practice because I have a strong personal commitment to justice.

Working to help juveniles protect their
rights and their future

When a juvenile is charged with a crime, their rights and their future are
at stake. I understand the difficulties faced by minors pressured by drugs,
alcohol, and the many decisions that they face as they come of age. It can
be devastating to discover that your child was charged with a crime.

I am an experienced attorney who will work confidentially and compassionately to protect the rights of minors and to mitigate charges and penalties. My primary goal as a juvenile defense attorney is to minimize fines, prevent jail time, and keep your child in school. It is never too late to help your child get back on track. I will work to defend your child's record and future.
