My Philosophy

“I'm your defense lawyer; I’m here for you, and I’ll be there with you.” I make sure every client leaves my office with this knowledge. My clients often come to me at their lowest, and then trust me to advise them on decisions concerning their future and freedom. For this reason it is important for my clients to know that when they hire me, they get me. Day or night, weekends and holidays, I make myself available – not just to answer questions, but to alleviate the stress and anxiety that come with facing criminal charges. For me, the practice of law is not about cases – it’s about people.


Recent Testimonial

I made a mistake one night, acted in a way that was uncharacteristic for me, and I got arrested.  I was seriously embarrassed, not to mention a bit scared.  I called my friend Michael Hernandez, and he really helped to put me at ease when he took a lot of time to explain to me what to expect in my case.  He assured me that everything we talked about would be private and confidential, which was great because we have a lot of friends in common. The outcome of the case was great, and Mike proved he’s a master at keeping secrets.
