Whether it is the Police, the District Attorney’s Office, the Public Defender’s Office, or even maybe your own lawyer, very often you are treated just like a case number.

I, however, see a human being that is undergoing a great deal of stress, apprehension or even anger for being improperly accused.  As  human being is different, so is every case and every situation.

My approach and that of every member of my staff, is to obtain all the facts, every detail and every piece of information that is available in connection with the problem or problems at hand & then develop the necessary strategies to solve them one by one.  Sometimes, the simple solution is to present the prosecutor with details that either contradict or mitigate what they have been told by the police or the accuser.  Sometimes, a case can be effectively handled quickly with a simple negotiation of a reasonable disposition.  Other times, a lawyer must invest time in the discovery process to understand all the evidence to be challenged in pre-trial suppression hearings to see if a favorable resolution can be obtained without having to go to trial.

In any event, everything in my office starts with a no-judgment, can-do approach and a desire and willingness to seek out the details of the case to develop the most appropriate and effective strategies.  AGAIN, my client is not just a case number!
