Attorney Profile

A diligent Tucson criminal defense attorney

Since 1999, I have represented individuals all over Arizona against misdemeanor and felony charges before state and federal courts. My passion for justice and my commitment to clients have made me a well-respected criminal defense advocate, well known for upholding the constitutional rights of the people I represent.

An experienced attorney providing personal attention

Unlike many Tucson criminal defense attorneys, I have never taken any court-appointed or contract cases. By obtaining cases solely through referrals and advertising, I am able to keep my case load manageable in order to devote myself entirely to each client and provide the one-on-one attention they deserve. There is no greater compliment than to be referred new cases from former clients.

Giving back to the community

I am actively involved in the Tucson community because I enjoy the feeling of giving back and believe in setting a good example for my four children.
