Let an Aggressive Former Prosecutor Defend You Against Criminal Charges

I am a former state prosecutor and assistant county prosecutor. I was a New Jersey deputy attorney general with the Division of Criminal Justice and a former assistant prosecutor with the trial section of the Atlantic County Prosecutor’s Office. I know how a prosecutor evaluates a criminal case and how he prepares a case for court. As a former prosecutor, I know what it takes to successfully defend against criminal charges.

I have won “not guilty” verdicts for my clients in all types of criminal trials, including major felony charges such as murder, felony murder, aggravated manslaughter, armed robbery, conspiracy, drug distribution, possession of drugs, commercial bribery, aggravated sexual assault, weapons offenses, theft and numerous DWI/DUI and other drunk driving related cases.
