Seasoned Legal Representation From a Former District Attorney

You are at risk for many penalties, including potential jail time, fines, probation, the loss of your driving privileges and other court-ordered actions. To fight the charge with an effective defense, you need an attorney who is experienced in this complex legal field, which combines scientific forensic evidence with a range of legal factors. The quality of the legal representation you retain can play a significant role in how your case is ultimately resolved. You will want someone who understands what to look for when investigating the evidence, who has trial experience and who will be committed and aggressive in court.

As a Palmer OUI attorney, I have the experience and legal skills you need. I am a former District Attorney, with over 23 years of legal experience. My former role as a D. A. gives me a depth of insight into how cases are built by the state. I use that insight on your behalf throughout every phase of the legal process. I have argued in front of a jury in over 400 cases

In addition to legal experience built representing clients before a judge and jury, I am a lecturer and author on the topic of OUI defense for continuing legal education classes. I pride my practice on being on the cutting edge of interpreting the law, the science of OUI and standards of practice at every level of law enforcement as it involves drunk driving and breath testing. When you hire me, you are hiring a lawyer who has the knowledge and experience to look at every angle of your case for the best defense.
