My whole life, my family has been very important to me.
From my parents, I learned the value of hard work, honesty, and compassion. I saw the sacrifices that they made to give me and my brother every opportunity, and support us no matter what.
Now that I have four kids of my own, I hope to instill the same values in my own children. As a parent, I would do anything to make sure that my children feel supported, and that they are healthy and safe.
I understand how fiercely a parent wants to protect their child. I also understand how helpless you can feel when your child goes off into the world, and they have to make their own choices. Sometimes, those choices are mistakes.
No matter how well you have prepared your child to make good choices, mistakes happen. But that doesn't mean that you won't do everything that you can to protect your child.
As a parent myself, I understand the difficult family dynamics that oftentimes lead a child to a run-in with the law. I have been working with juvenile cases since I became a lawyer in 2007, and it is still my passion in life.
When you hire me, I make you and your family a promise. I not only promise to defend your child to the best of my ability as a lawyer. I also promise to defend your child like a parent would - recognizing that no one is perfect, but that your child deserves support and another chance.
