Belmont Criminal Defense Lawyer

If you have been charged with a criminal offense in Belmont, you not only run the risk of jail time or probation, you may lose your job and find it hard to find a new one. It is imperative that you work with an experienced criminal defense lawyer to develop a defense strategy customized to your case.

Before I started my own legal practice, I worked as a public defender for 12 years. During that time, I handled extremely challenging cases representing clients accused very serious crimes. Over the years I gained legal knowledge and developed the trial skills necessary to prevail on the toughest cases. In my current practice I bring that experience to representing clients charged with a wide variety of crimes in the state and federal court.

When I represent a client I carefully explain every step of the litigation process so that s/he comes into court knowing what to expect. I understand the stress and fear of facing criminal charges, so I make it a priority to reduce my clients’ stress by helping them understand the legal process. I also prioritize creative, personalized defense strategies for my clients because I understand that no two cases are alike. When my clients have difficult decisions to make, I explain their options as well as providing my own impressions. I have never and will never force or bully a client into pleading guilty or doing something that does not feel right.
