Biography

I grew up throughout the Southeastern United States. I attended college at Furman University in Greenville, South Carolina and I graduated with a B.A. in political science and philosophy. I moved to Minnesota in 1999 to attend the University of Minnesota law school and I decided stay after I graduated. Following graduation, I clerked for a Hennepin County Judge and then took a job with the Stearns County Public Defender's Office. I have been in private practice since 2016.

My practice involves representing people charged with crimes as well as individuals dealing with issues surrounding Orders for Protection and Harassment Restraining Orders - both petitioners and respondents. I am here to help with the collateral consequences as well including, but not limited to, driver's license revocations, motor vehicle forfeiture, employment concerns and more. Please contact me and I am available for a free consultation regarding whatever legal issues you might be facing.

Q. Why is it when you get a public defender thats rude and don't care about you their is nothing that can be done.
A: A public defender isn’t there to tell your son what he wants to hear. The public defender is there to give you son legal advice and sometimes that includes bad news. I don’t know what your son is charged with, but a private attorney may be more affordable than you realize. Make some phone calls.
Q. If officer follows you presuming erroneously initial violation and then sees a legitimate violation, is it a legal stop?
A: The officer doesn't need a legal reason to follow you. He or she only needs a legally sufficient basis to pull you over. Crossing the fog line could be such a legal basis. But don't take the officer's word for it. You should get an attorney and have the attorney view video of the traffic stop to ensure that that claim that you crossed the fog line is true.
Q. If I got an ingestion charge in South Dakota and didn't not ingestthe drug in South Dakota how can I fight this charge
