CRIMINAL DEFENSE

CRIMINAL LAW SPECIALIST

In theory, the criminal justice system ensures public safety. But the federal and state governments have used it for more.

Criminal law has become a way to generate revenue, seize assets, incarcerate “undesirables,” and maintain power over businesses and individuals.

Individuals accused of a crime deserve protection from abuse of power. From the moment charges are filed, a criminal accusation can ruin a person’s life. Much of my criminal work results in favorable outcomes before the case goes to trial or becomes public. If a case proceeds to trial, I specialize in persuading the courts to rule in my client’s favor on issues of unconstitutional police behavior and prosecutorial misconduct.
