Please describe a case(s) in the last year or two where you made a big difference.
I have obtained outright dismissals in criminal matters without ever going to trial, and in a great many cases, obtained favorable plea agreements for clients facing all but certain conviction in a criminal matter. I have helped people with difficult divorce and family law problems reach acceptable resolutions of this issues. I have successfully made a number of immigrants legal residents and/or citizens of the United States. I have helped people overwhelmed with debt get relief under the bankruptcy code.

What should clients look for in a lawyer?
You should look for a lawyer with experience handling the type of legal problem you have. I have experience handling both state and federal criminal matters, both misdemeanors and felonies; handling divorce and family law matters, including modifications of child custody and support cases; handling Chapter 7 bankruptcies; handling immigration matters, including relief from deportation and family-based petitions for residency; handling car accident (personal injury) cases including those with severe injuries such as traumatic brain injury; handling landlord/tenant matters on behalf of landlords to evict non-paying or non-compliant tenants; and I prepare simple wills, powers of attorney and living wills (power of attorney for health care) at a reasonable cost to my clients.

How important is local knowledge to the success of your cases?
Lawyers with experience with the local judges and other lawyers in the community are better able to predict the likelihood of success in virtually any given legal matter arising in their local community.

What information can you provide in a free phone consultation?
Most often, a free phone consultation is limited to making a determination as to whether or not to you need to hire a lawyer, explaining the process involved, and discussing the terms and fees involved in retaining an attorney to assist you with your legal problem.

What information do you need in a free phone consultation?
You should be prepared to explain the facts of your particular legal problem in an open and honest manner. Rules governing my conduct as a lawyer prevent me from disclosing anything you tell me to anyone else, so you should not be afraid to tell me things you would not tell anyone else.

What differentiates you from other lawyers in your community?
I personally prepare all documents and pleadings in every case I handle. I return calls and/or answer e-mails within 24 hours.

What is the most rewarding aspect of your job?
Helping people deal with the courts.
