I have exclusively practiced criminal law since 2005. I have a thorough understanding of criminal law and the court process. I have been lead counsel in over 50 criminal jury and bench trials, as well as first appearance/preliminary hearings, arraignments, and motion to suppress hearings. My extensive experience has made me into a highly skilled trial attorney and these skills are proven by my impressive track record of success. I have represented clients on a wide range of criminal cases. My representation has resulted in numerous dismissals prior to trial and acquittals on behalf of my clients.

I graduated cum laude from Thomas M. Cooley Law School in Lansing, Michigan. During law school, I received seven Certificates of Merit in Civil Procedure I and II, Torts II, Wills, Trusts, & Estates, Federal Administrative Law, Law Practice, and Advanced Writing. I was an Honors Scholarship recipient and was nominated for the Distinguished Student Award and Outstanding Student for Clinical Legal Education Association Award. During law school, I interned for over a year in the Thomas M. Cooley Innocence Project, which is dedicated to exonerating wrongfully convicted people through DNA testing and reforming the criminal justice system to prevent future injustice.

My time interning with the Innocence Project and the experiences I have had as a practicing attorney have caused me to take a special interest in the wrongfully accused or those who have been victimized by the judicial system. If you or someone you know is going through the criminal process and wishes to exercise your constitutional rights, call me so that together we can make sure the system works for you.

The focus of my law practice has always been helping people whose lives have been put "on hold" because of a criminal charge that they could never have imagined facing. I have been practicing exclusively in criminal defense since 2004. I attained the rank of Senior Attorney in a major Georgia criminal defense firm and during my time there I handled a vast number of criminal cases encompassing every imaginable evidentiary situation.

I have a special interest in cases where agents of the State have stopped and searched either you or your vehicle and claim to have recovered contraband material such as such as marijuana, narcotics or prescription medication. Many of these situations result in a violation of a person's right against unreasonable searches and seizures under the 4th Amendment of the Constitution. A wrongful stop and search by agents of the State sometimes can result in charges of driving under the influence or an allegation that you were driving with a suspended license. Searches resulting from warrants can be a violation of your rights as well and many warrants are illegally obtained or illegally executed. Of course, I can't guarantee that any of these scenarios will apply to your case but they are more common than you might think.

I also specialize in resolving charges of family violence battery and many of my trials have been about family violence charges. Many of these cases can be reduced of dismissed under the right circumstances or resolved in other ways that will preserve your criminal record. Some cases require a trial. As of the date of this statement I have had 56 jury trials. As a result of conducting these trials, I have learned to pick juries that will listen to what I have to say. I have learned to cross examine witnesses. I have learned how to stop prosecutors from trying to introduce illegal evidence against my clients. I have become known for my creative and compelling closing arguments.

I graduated from the Georgia State University School of Law in 2004. I am a member of the Georgia Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, The Henry County Bar Association and The Atlanta Bar Association. I also hold the degree of Master of Music Performance from the University of Georgia and have studied classical guitar with, among others, Dr. William Hearn and John Sutherland, a student of Andres Segovia. It sounds like a far cry from law, and it is, but music operates under its own complex system of "laws" and I think studying it taught me how to solve problems and how to persevere through careful and tedious work.

If you or a loved one has been charged with a crime let's discuss it. I have the experience, the knowledge, and the ability to help you.
