Areas of Practice


Many individuals first court appearances come as a result of an OUI/DUI charge. An OUI conviction can have a negative effect on one's criminal record, driving record, motor vehicle insurance costs, and potential job prospects. It is important to consult with an attorney to ensure all possible avenues of defenses are explored in these matters

Probation violations

Meeting the conditions of your probation is often a daunting task, and failure to do so may result in your probation officer issuing a notice of probation surrender. When he or she does so, they may ask the Court to detain you pending a probation surrender hearing. You are entitled to a full hearing before a district court Judge to determine if you have violated probation. Violating probation can carry serious consequences, so in these circumstances, hiring an attorney to represent you is paramount


Charges for drug crimes vary depending on the classification and quantity of drugs as well as certain paraphernalia that was alleged to have been found during the investigation. It is not uncommon for a defendant in a drug case to have been overcharged or subjected to improper investigation procedures by law enforcement. A competent attorney will be able to identify these potential issues to help build a strong defense. 


If you are cited for a criminal violation by the police, it is the clerk magistrate's responsibility to determine whether or not there is probable cause to issue a criminal complaint. Having an attorney represent you in a magistrate hearing will give you the best opportunity to resolve the issue before you are formally charged with a crime. 


Assault/domestic crimes

Allegations of Assault & Battery and Domestic Crimes often occur spontaneously in high-energy environments and situations. These cases are very fact specific. It is important that you hire an attorney who will conduct a thorough investigation of the matter so that they have a comprehensive understanding of the facts to identify all your available defenses.  

larceny/destruction of property

Crimes of this nature are considered a felony offense if the amount in question is over $250. If you are accused of stealing or damaging the property of another, it is important to contact an attorney immediately to ensure that your rights are protected during the course of the investigation. 


You can only protect your liberties in this world by protecting the other man’s freedom.
