Isaiah 1:17 “Say no to wrong. Learn to do good. Work for justice. Help the down-and-out. Stand up for the homeless. Go to bat for the defenseless.”

Our Approach

My approach to defending someone who is charged with, or possibly facing, criminal charges, is fairly straightforward. I am going to give that person the full attention they deserve to arrive at the best possible outcome for them. While I cannot ever guarantee a result, I can guarantee my work. I will leave no stone unturned in my investigation of the charges you are facing.


I got my introduction to protecting the defenseless at an early age. My father started a jail ministry when I was a young teenager. There were many times my parents opened their home to people who had just been released from custody. I also traveled around Wisconsin with my dad assisting him with his bible studies in the jail.


I will personally handle each of my client’s files. I have worked for other criminal defense firms in the Phoenix area over the last 17 years. There were many occasions that I was handed a file at the last moment to cover everything from arguing motions, arguing before the Court of Appeals, or conducting a jury trial. While I had the experience, skill, and knowledge to do so, I do not believe that is a professional way to practice law. I also do not believe it is fair to a client. It is my approach to make sure each and every client gets the time and focus they deserve in their matter. I will not be handing your matter off to another attorney. You can be assured that your case is important to me.
