 Belief Statement

I believe every person is innocent unless proven guilty in court.

I believe every person deserves an attorney.

I believe every person has the right to have their story told by a dedicated professional who will speak on their behalf.

I believe the time to tell my clients' story is to the jury of his/her peers.

I believe in the jury system.

I believe that people are good, but may make bad choices.

I believe that one bad choice shouldn't define that person.

I believe that every person deserves a second chance.

That is what I believe and this is why I am a criminal defense attorney and why I choose to represent people against the government.
