I’m a Criminal Defense Attorney Because…


In my former life as an Assistant Prosecuting Attorney I witnessed so much abuse of authority that my conscience wouldn’t let me continue to represent the government.

“The prosecutor has far more control over life, liberty and reputation than any other person in America. His discretion is tremendous. He can have citizens investigated, and if he is that kind of person, he can have this done to the tune of public statements and veiled or unveiled intimations …

While the prosecutor at his best is one of the most beneficial forces in our society, when he acts from malice or other base motives, he is one of the worst.”

Justice Robert Jackson, prior to serving as chief U.S. Prosecutor at Nuremberg.
