I have handled cases as serious as a Death Penalty case (which I handled successfully), to nearly fifty “Three Strikes” cases, and over one thousand felony cases.

Recently, I negotiated a plea deal in a case where my client was charged with kidnapping. I obtained a sentence of time already served of only 90 days.

In another case, I won a Not Guilty verdict in a case with a mandatory sentence of “Life Without Possibility of Parole,” and my client was set free.
