Over 30 Years Of Trial Experience

I focus my legal practice exclusively on criminal defense. As a former criminal prosecutor, I understand exactly what tactics the opposition will try to use and how to combat them. When necessary, I can bring in private investigators and other experts to help us.

With decades of experience on both sides of criminal cases, I know what it takes to get a favorable decision. I listen to your story and prepare extensively for every case.

I Will Fight For You

I started my career as a criminal prosecutor. During that time, I saw firsthand the consequences an ill-prepared defense can have on someone’s life. In 2006, I opened the doors of my own firm to make a strong defense accessible to New Jersey’s citizens.
