From the day I started working in the field until today, I have learned the practice of criminal and appellate law from some of the finest attorneys in the country. I respect my clients and their families above all else and am keenly sympathetic to the fact that, when most of them come to me, they have already been through the difficult and emotionally wrenching process that is a criminal trial, only to lose and find themselves or somone they love very much subject to a long term in prison. I never promise anything to my clients other than the fact that I will wake up and work as hard as I can for them every day until there is a resolution in their case. Every moment I am working for my clients, I know that I carry the burden, not only of their hopes, but also those of their mothers, fathers, aunts, uncles, brothers, sisters, cousins, wives, husbands, girlfriends, boyfriends, children, neighbors and so forth. I take this burden seriously enough never to make promises I cannot keep to those people. I enjoy and respect every client I have and appreciate the faith that each and every one of them has placed in my abilities.
