I have been a lawyer since 1994 and have a criminal and DUI law practice in Montgomery County, PA and the surrounding counties. In the 1990s, I was an Assistant District Attorney in Montgomery County, PA in the Major Crimes Unit. As a former prosecutor and current criminal defense attorney, I have handled cases ranging from capital (death penalty) homicide and felony cases to DUI charges and traffic offenses.
I am proud to have earned a reputation as a tough, hardworking criminal defense attorney. As both a prosecutor and defense lawyer, I have a great deal of experience handling criminal cases. I have a thorough understanding of criminal defense practice and am proud of my ability to “come up big” in big cases. At the same time, however, I am mindful that sometimes the best result in a criminal case is a negotiated agreement which can provide the certainty that clients sometimes desire. I recognize that every case is unique and I am committed to zealously representing each client to earn the best possible result.
As a prosecutor in the Montgomery County District Attorney’s Major Crimes Unit, and in private practice as a defense lawyer, I have handled thousands of criminal cases. I have practiced in Pennsylvania state, federal and juvenile courts, working closely with my clients to protect their rights and prepare a successful defense.
