Drug Charges or DUI
Depending on the circumstances, a drug charge or DUI can result in a number of penalties. I'm an aggressive defense attorney who has handled multiple DUI and drug charge scenarios. I understand the law, how to challenge an arrest, how to beat the charges, and avoid the harshest penalties. Don't allow your life to be dictated by a mistake.
Drug diversion, identity theft, tax fraud, internet crimes, embezzlement, and other white-collar offenses often get charged as felonies. I can use my decades of legal experience to address your case as efficiently and discreetly as possible while aiming to shield you from the harshest consequences.
