As a former prosecutor, people have often asked me how I am now able to defend individuals accused of the same criminal acts, that I used to prosecute. This is an understandable question. As a prosecutor I strove to administer justice, by fully investigating and only prosecuting those cases which could be proven beyond a reasonable doubt. As a defense attorney, I seek to defend the same justice, by analyzing every factual aspect of the case, and interpreting the facts in light of the most current case law, to assure that the case can be proven beyond a reasonable doubt. If that proof is there, the focus of my representation will be negotiating a disposition to the case, that is just and fair. If that proof is not there, the focus of my representation is to attack the State's case through argument, discovery, pretrial motions, and if necessary, a trial, to again assure that justice is done. Ironically, my prosecutorial background gives me the exact tools necessary to defend you in a criminal prosecution.
If you are presently under the investigation of law enforcement, it is imperative that you contact an attorney immediately. "Anything you say can and will be used against you," is not a just a phrase. It can be the difference between a strong case that is prosecuted, and a weak case that is closed without prosecution.
