I practiced law in the Silicon Valley and Los Angeles for over fifteen
years. During that time, I represented people charged with felonies and
misdemeanors. I also represented the interests of a small motion picture
company which held the rights to several classic Hollywood films.
In 2006, I moved to Eastern Washington wine country. During the last nine
years I have focused my practice on
criminal defense in Tri-Cities. I have successfully represented dozens of people who have
been charged with
domestic violence. In the first six months of this year I have had prosecutors dismiss charges
of domestic violence against five of my clients.
Over the years, I have successfully represented dozens of people charged with
driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs. I have successfully represented people who were
facing life in prison without possibility of parole, who have been charged
with murder, rape, assault, arson, robbery.
In 2014, much of my time was taken up representing a person who had been
charged in federal court with conspiracy to commit wire fraud, major fraud
against the United States and two counts of submitting false claims. The
government produced over five million pages of documents. Pre trial motions
took place over months. There was a trial before a jury which lasted a
month. The jury returned a verdict of not guilty to all four counts.
If you are facing a criminal charge, take it seriously no matter how small.
Over ninety percent of people charged with a crime plead guilty. Although
there are many times when it is prudent to plead guilty, there are also
many times when it is foolish. I know the difference.
