Alleged Hit and Run of a motorcycle, of which the rider had no memory of due to a concussion, by my elderly client in a car was dismissed.  As usual, the Police gathered only evidence and statements of alleged eyewitnesses that supported a finding of guilt.  After careful analysis of each of their statements I was able to show and convince the prosecutor that none of them had actually clearly seen a collision or my client doing any bad driving whatever; after getting the clients warrant quashed, he did not even have to attend his next hearing.  I showed the prosecution in great detail the weaknesses in the police report, the flaws in their eyewitnesses statements; and showing them my own collected evidence of the road conditions, examining weather reports from the day of the incident, and lack of impact damage between the cycle and car.  Based on my detailed arguments and research the prosecutor was persuaded that they lacked sufficient evidence to prove that my client did anything wrong. They saw things my way and agreed to dismiss the case.

I have more than 20 years of experience defending my clients' rights. I handle all cases personally from start to finish, ensuring that each of my clients gains the full benefit of my many years of experience. At my firm, there are no associates right out of law school showing up in court knowing practically nothing about you or your case, I know my way around the courts and how they work. Throughout my career, I have learned that the best approach is not always the most aggressive one, though sometimes there is no other choice. My first goal in every case is the dismissal of my client's charge(s). In many situations, however, I have found that negotiation offers better opportunities for success.When you work with me your case will never be passed off to a paralegal or a less-experienced associate. I am a solo practitioner and always have been.
