It can be intimidating to find yourself facing criminal charges. Whom can you trust to handle your defense? What are your legal options?

White Collar Crimes

My criminal practice focuses primarily on federal white collar crimes. I have represented clients throughout the country facing serious charges for white collar fraud crimes:

Federal Sentencing

Just because an attorney is licensed to handle cases in certain courts does not mean it is in the best interest of his or her client. This is particularly true when it comes to federal sentencing, a very complex area of criminal law. I am available on a referral or by appointment to represent clients who need representation for federal sentencing. I have a tremendous amount of experience in this area and have the expertise necessary to obtain positive outcomes in federal cases.

Federal or State Appeals and Writs of Habeas Corpus

If you feel you have been wrongfully convicted of a crime or your case was not handled properly by your legal counsel, you have several options, primarily appeal or writs of habeas corpus. I offer strong representation in this area of the law and can represent clients nationwide in these matters.
