Why I Love what I do: I have enjoyed working in the criminal law arena for over 35 years. I enjoy this area of the law as it provides daily opportunities to assist people who are finding challenges in their lives. I have found that if you able to assist one family member, it often has a ripple effect to where a small legal success can have an enormous effect on all members of a family.
