I have devoted my career to defending those accused of criminal charges. While previously at the Law Office of the Cook County Public Defender, I had the opportunity to work on the full array of criminal cases. I have represented thousands of clients accused of traffic offenses through Murder.
I have tried 100’s of cases in both jury and non-jury trials. My experience at the Public Defender’s office taught me the valuable lessons of thinking quickly on my feet, balancing multiple projects, and working under pressure. I confront all challenges with relative ease and a cool, calm demeanor.
My vast experience trying criminal cases will be to your benefit. My extensive litigation skills give me insight into how to prepare an effective and persuasive argument for your release on parole. Due to my reputation as a skilled lawyer and advocate, I am a frequent speaker at legal conferences.
I was born in Skokie, Illinois and raised in the Chicago area. I now call Austin my home. In my free time, I enjoy scuba diving, attending live concerts, and going to the park with my Yorkie, Indiana Jones.
My passion for the law is fundamental: treat each client with respect and dignity and make sure they are fully informed as to the options they have. Everyone deserves an attorney who will fight for them.
When considering hiring a parole attorney you deserve the very best. Your freedom depends on it! Call me today for an evaluation of your case and how we can help.
