Experienced trial attorney with 17+ years of actual, in-court experience. I don't sit behind a desk all day and talk a big game. I'm in the courtroom standing by your side, fighting for the results you deserve in every case I handle. I focus my practice mainly in criminal defense, but I handle a variety of other types of cases like general civil litigation and selected Family Court cases.

My years of criminal experience makes me an invaluable asset to have representing you as your attorney when you get charged with a criminal offense. I have tried cases ranging from petty misdemeanors to capital offenses. And as a former state prosecutor for nearly 12 years, I know everything the prosecutor is going to do throughout your case because I did it for years. There isn't a case type I haven't handled, so you know you'll be in good, understanding hands when you choose to hire me as your attorney. I practice in every city and town in Rhode Island, including Providence, Cranston, Warwick, North Kingstown, South Kingstown, Coventry, West Warwick and more. Whether it's a DUI, DWI, breathalyzer refusal, domestic violence, property crimes, violent crimes or anything else, make sure your rights are protected by hiring an experienced criminal law attorney who knows the system! There isn't a criminal court I haven't practiced in and there isn't a judge before whom I haven't practiced. My years of experience have generated real results for real people. Remember - just because you "did it," doesn't mean you're guilty! Call today!
