Nearly 40 Years Of Helping People Avoid A Drug Conviction On Their Records

As a criminal defense attorney and former substitute judge with more than 38 years of experience, I have seen too many good people make mistakes in judgment or find themselves in the wrong place with the wrong people and pay for it forever. I will work aggressively to have your drug charges either dismissed or reduced as much as possible. I have a successful record getting felony possession and some distribution charges dropped to misdemeanor offenses or taken under advisement to be dismissed at a later date.

My experience with misdemeanor and felony narcotics charges includes:

  • Federal narcotics offenses, felony trafficking
  • Prescription drug offenses, pain clinic fraud
  • Marijuana possession and distribution
  • Cocaine possession
  • Heroin possession
  • Methamphetamine possession, meth lab operations
  • Cultivation, manufacturing charges, grow house charges
  • Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
  • Ecstasy offenses

Behind every criminal charge is a real story of an individual. When I prepare a criminal defense case, the human element is an important part of the evidence.
