I knew I wanted to practice criminal defense law even before I started law school. Having been raised by two criminal defense attorneys in upstate New York, I internalized at an early age the importance of helping others, especially those who are most vulnerable to abuse.
I grew up watching my parents successfully help and defend people whose lives were in peril. I strive to do the same for my clients. I believe that by zealously defending my clients, I also serve the greater goal of maintaining and preserving the integrity of our criminal justice system.
I joined a prominent criminal defense firm in Atlanta shortly after graduating from law school where I developed extensive trial skills and was trained by local and national experts in DUI and criminal defense. After receiving incredible mentorship for nearly a decade, I opened up my own, modern practice that incorporates cutting-edge technologies to best serve my clients.
My law practice is located in Ponce City Market in Atlanta, Georgia and I provide concierge-level service to clients facing drug and alcohol-related offenses, including cases involving traffic, misdemeanor, and felony charges. I also help attorneys facing disciplinary complaints.
I am always exploring new opportunities to deliver better client service. I use digital tools and systems to make the process of hiring, and working with me easy and enjoyable, even under the most stressful circumstances.
In addition to practicing law, I am a regular speaker at national legal seminars. Early on in my career, I discovered a passion for helping other attorneys improve their practices and I became a regular lecturer on a variety of legal topics.
