Sometimes my clients approach me with the most interesting stories. As always, the stories are unique to their specific circumstances, but every once in a while a case comes along that sparks my investigative interests. In fact, since I was young I've had a love for tales that involve interesting investigation of crime — whether on TV or in a book. This interest lasted from my time as an undergrad at the University of Maryland through to my graduation from Delaware Law School. Naturally, my legal interests started to revolve around criminal law.

Working at the Attorney General's office as a young lawyer was eye-opening. It piqued my interests as a lawyer; I got to experience on both sides of criminal law, learned that an understanding of the prosecution is vital, and committed myself to learn the art of criminal defense.

Coming into My Own as a Lawyer in Delaware

The next step was natural: I would open my own law firm and take the cases that I believed. I would fight fiercely for the clients that gave me their trust — because, in a lot of cases, their future was on the line. Personally, I wanted to be that difference for the people I got to work for.

Professionally, I wanted to be sure I made the right business decisions. And honestly, it was easy to feel a sense of purpose in this line of work. This is where I belong.

My prime goal is to help my clients achieve what they hope to one day have — while seeking justice all the time.

A Developed Sense of How Criminal Law Works

For years now, I've had the privilege of following through on cases that involved many opportunities for further investigation. Sometimes they yield surprising results, but for the most part, I've developed a pretty effective ability to anticipate what will likely occur during the process of any typical criminal case.

This useful tendency comes from my knowledge of the opposing side, as well as the kind of ingrained expertise you get from operating independently in this line of work for so long. There's no other way I could have gotten the knowledge I have, and it's thanks to the stories of my clients — dating back to 1987.

Willing to Go the Extra Mile

In some cases, my work recalls the same kind of high stakes I like to keep alive in my free time. It was a blast to travel recently to Russia, off the Kuban River, to experience the thrill of the hunt for prized game. Fortunately for you, I like to keep this same spirit alive if it's necessary to take your case to court. Your case requires diligent attention to detail and the mentality of a fighter. Schedule a free consultation, and you'll see that I have the ability to take your case through to the end.
