More Than Two Decades Of Experience

Before fully devoting my time and efforts to the practice of criminal law, I served as a magistrate judge for one of the biggest drug courts in Indianapolis. I pride myself on possessing a bird’s-eye view of the justice system’s “take-no-prisoners” attitude. As an experienced Indianapolis criminal defense lawyer, I hold my own when standing up to a prosecutor on your behalf, prepared to use every strategy in the book to defend your constitutional rights.
