What is your legal background?
I received my JD from Wake Forest University School of Law in 1982, and have more than 30 years of experience in representing clients for thousands of criminal and DUI cases. From 1985 to 1989, I served as the Assistant Commonwealth's Attorney for the City of Virginia Beach, giving me valuable knowledge of how the prosecution process works. I also experienced in personal injury litigation and claims.

I am licensed to practice in the states of Virginia, Florida, and Utah. In 1997, I earned a Board Certification as a Criminal Trial Specialist from the National Board of Trial Advocacy (NBTA). I am also part of the American Bar Association, National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, the Virginia Trial Lawyers Association, and the Virginia Beach Bar Association.

My guarantee is that you will feel better after talking with me!

Do you offer free consultation?
Yes, I offer free, no-obligation initial consultations so that you can be fully informed before making any decisions.

Do I need an attorney or should I represent myself?
Retaining the services of an experienced attorney who is tough and dedicated to getting the best possible result is almost always the best choice. I believe that we "little guys" may be small, but have the Constitution, Supreme Court decisions, and rights as Americans on our side. With the knowledge of the courtroom, its players, and the legal process, I have the tools and skills to make a difference between a good and bad result.
