OVI Attorney

I am known for my thorough approach to defending my clients. Remember, it is the Prosecutor's job to prosecute you. There may be beneficial evidence which they choose not to present or to simply ignore. I will find every piece of evidence and discover ways to challenge the police's version of the incident. The prosecutor has a team of police and experts on fighting on their side, it's important that you too have a team to fight for your rights. We review every witness statement, video and piece of evidence that will be presented against you. Many times the evidence presented against you can be challenged. We then find information that will defend you.

I treat each and every of my clients with the respect I would expect. Unlike some others, we never recommend that you immediately accept a plea bargain. If a plea bargain is offered, we will discuss the pros and cons to make sure you understand what you are facing.
