Skills And Expertise
My practice is primarily focused in the field of criminal defense and related areas. I handle cases ranging from traffic tickets to first-degree murder. I also handle appeals of trial convictions and actions for post-conviction relief.
I’m licensed to practice in the state of Missouri as well as in the Federal courts for the Western District of Missouri and the District of Kansas.
My professional experience: I have a B.S. from the University of Oklahoma (1985) and graduated from Washburn Law School in Topeka in 1988.
I worked for the Missouri State Public Defender System for 13 years before going into private practice in 2003. My skills and experience are centered on trial work. I’ve served as lead counsel in over 100 jury trails in state and federal courts.
I’m a member of the Missouri Bar Association and Kansas City Metropolitan Bar Association. I’ve previously served as a member and Treasurer of the Missouri Association of Drug Court Professionals. Drug courts are therapeutic courts that exist throughout the state of Missouri. They offer an alternative to incarceration for people who have committed non-violent crimes as a result of drug abuse and addiction.
