Summary

Hello, to all of those in need of criminal defense. I've been around the block a time or two when it comes to a full life of experiences and three careers from which to draw informed decisions and direction for you in your time of need. I, myself, am a son, a father and grand father. I have been an independently thinking person since age 16 when I ran away from home to join a Catholic Missionary Order (1973-84) and travel the world. At one time I was proficient in Spanish, French, German and Italian and can revert back to their usage after about 3 days in the prospective country. Then, I had a philosophical change and came back to Virginia to complete college and a secular education. During the summer of 85' I was a college exchange student improving my Spanish in Chihuahua, Mexico. After graduation I became a police officer and detective on the Norfolk Police Department, 1988-98; After a traffic accident in January 1998 I ended up in a 6 week coma, lost my left leg below the knee and use of my right arm. I read law while on the Police Department and passed the Bar becoming an Attorney in February 1999. I have run two Corporate law firms and was a public defender in Chesapeake for nearly ten years. My job now is to help you find, not just the best solution to your criminal defense needs but solutions for life in general.
