I have spent my entire career as a lawyer fighting on behalf of those trapped in the criminal legal system. Whether it is proving my client’s innocence before a jury, holding the government accountable for their actions in Federal Court, or challenging unfair results in the courts of appeal, I believe that my role as an attorney is to always speak truth to power.

I also understand that, far too often, my clients voice and humanity can get lost in the machinery of the legal system. That is why I always strive to listen and understand and to extend compassion, patience, and kindness to those I represent. And I strive to make sure that, no matter the forces that stand against them, my client’s story will always be told.
