Protecting Your Rights: Skilled Criminal Defense Attorney & Advocate
I focus on what I know and what I'm experienced doing. My entire career has been dedicated to criminal law (prosecution and defense), student conduct, military actions including hearings and courts-martial, investigations, and Title IX issues. I am dedicated to advocating for those in need and helping those when they need it most. I work to keep my overhead low in order to provide more personalized and strategic representation to my clients to ensure the best possible outcome. My career is defined by a pursuit of excellence and a deep-seated passion for defending the rights of individuals.

Service is important to me. It's why I served over 11 years as an Active Duty Air Force Officer. It's why 15 years since I commissioned as an officer, I continue that service as a Lieutenant Colonel in the Air National Guard as a Regional Defense Counsel for the Southeast Region managing other defense counsels in 14 states.
When people come to me when facing criminal charges, being the subject of an investigation, or facing conduct issues in school, I understand they need help. Everybody is entitled to an advocate and having someone who can help guide them through the process. I've spent my career focused on doing whatever I can to help those most in need. It's why I've decided to start my own firm focused on what matters the most. Beyond my military and legal accomplishments, my work is driven by a genuine desire to help people navigate their most challenging moments. Whether serving our country in uniform or representing clients in the courtroom, my goal has always been to offer guidance and fight for justice with integrity, honor, and a relentless pursuit of what is right.
One of my favorite quotes is by Martin Luther King, Jr. He says, "Life's most persistent and urgent question is - what are you doing for others?'" This firm is what I am doing for others. Reach out. Let's have a conversation.
