Lawyer Overview
...Read more

Born and raised in California, I received my Bachelor of Science degree in Accounting from the University of California, Berkeley.  I then enlisted in the U.S. Army and served in Viet Nam.  Upon returning to the States, I attended law school and graduated from Case Western Reserve University.  Since then, I’ve been involved in Constitutional litigation and individual rights.  Beginning in the early 1970's, I served as the attorney in charge of one the first mental health law projects in the country litigating Constitutional rights, including right to counsel.  For over the past 40 years, my practice has been primarily before the U.S. District Courts.  Starting in the late 1970’s, I served as a trial attorney with the U.S. Labor Department litigating Constitutional issues regarding the Federal Mine Safety and Health Act.  Since beginning my private legal practice in 1986, I’ve been primarily representing individuals charged with all types of federal criminal offenses in the U.S. District Courts. This work includes drug-related crimes, RICO violations, internet offenses, and white collar offenses such as bank, mail and wire fraud, money laundering, bribery structuring and Internet offenses. I have also represented individuals charged with offenses involving sensitive National Security issues.

How do I choose a lawyer?

Consider the following:
Comfort Level - Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?
Credentials - How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?
Cost - How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?
City - Is the lawyer's office conveniently located?

Not sure what questions to ask a lawyer?

Here are a few to get you started:

  • How long have you been in practice?
  • How many cases like mine have you handled?
  • How often do you settle cases out of court?
  • What are your fees and costs?
  • What are the next steps?
