I was taught early on by one of my mentors that at the end of the day the only thing an attorney will get out his profession is his reputation. I believe this to be absolutely true.
Simply put, criminal defense lawyers perform a service to their clients. This is the same as any other professional providing a service. In these cases the lawyer serves as a guide through the overwhelming process known as prosecution. I take the job quite seriously and make sure that the one thing the client receives is my attention and time. If you call my office, I return the call. If you have a question, I make sure that it is answered to your satisfaction.
In order to provide the best service to my clients I do not do volume business. I have handled many high profile cases in my time. I do not seek out the press in an effort to self-promote my practice. For most of my clients their case is high profile enough for them without an attorney seeking headlines at their expense.
I encourage people to come and sit with me face to face and decide if I am the right lawyer to handle their case. There is no charge for the first consultation if conducted at the office. Any consultation done off-site or at a detention facility requires a fee paid up front. If the client decides to retain the office, 100% of the consultation fee will be applied to the initial retainer for services.
