Choosing a criminal defense lawyer is a difficult task. Often people find themselves facing charges for the first time and are unsure and unfamiliar with the legal process and its final outcomes. That can be very intimidating. Above all, you must choose a lawyer capable of guiding you through all that uncertainty, and who is steadfast and willing to fight for you.
As a United States Marine, I was trained to fight for our country. Now, let a trained fighter, fight for you!
