Our Philosophy

The United States Constitution provides that every person is presumed innocent until proven guilty. We also presume all of our clients are innocent. We work diligently and aggressively while striving to protect client’s rights. From seeking critical discovery materials which may be pivotal in defending your case, to seeking out witnesses who have relevant information, and filing pre-trial motions such as, a motion to suppress evidence or motion to dismiss indictments. We will always fight for your rights, we are willing and ready to take your case to trial or seek justified resolutions.
