What I do
I help people who are charged with crimes. I offer advice and I advocate for my clients in court. I also help people prove their innocence even after they've been convicted of a crime. I love what I do because my own experience has shown me the value of good legal advice. My law firm is founded on the principle that good legal advice should be available to everyone charged with a crime, not just the wealthy or well-connected.
How I do it
I help people by sitting down with them and listening. After I listen, we make a plan to get the best result possible. Sometimes that means we go to battle in front of a jury. Sometimes that means we negotiate a plea agreement with the prosecutor. Whatever it takes, I am here to help.
I graduated from the University of Virginia School of Law and Brigham Young University. I started my career prosecuting in the Louisa County Commonwealth's Attorney's Office. After leaving the Commonwealth's Attorney's Office, I practiced criminal defense for a private law firm. In 2016, I opened my own practice.
I generally use payment plans with my clients. That means a certain amount of money will be due up front, and then the remaining balance is due on a weekly or monthly basis. I find this arrangement allows people to hire me who would not normally be able to afford an attorney. Don't be afraid to contact me because you think you can't afford an attorney. In almost all cases you will need to put some amount of money down, but we can make sure that we reach an agreement that is manageable for both of us.
