A conviction can spur a chain reaction, affecting your reputation, employment prospects, housing, ability to own or carry firearms and, potentially, your freedom. If you have been charged with a crime, you need an aggressive advocate who will stand up for your rights.

As a former Assistant Des Moines County Attorney and lifelong resident of the Burlington area, I know the local justice system inside and out. I am intimately familiar with the courts, law enforcement, prosecutors and all aspects of criminal law that may bear on your case.

Tenacious And Results-Oriented Representation

When enlisting the services of a criminal defense lawyer, your most pressing concern is likely whether you will obtain a positive result. No attorney can guarantee results; however, I can guarantee that I will devote 100 percent of my effort to your case. I will strive to achieve the best outcome possible for your situation.

In fact, my solid reputation for results-oriented representation is one of the many traits that sets me apart.* I am widely known as a driven and hard worker who will be tenacious in fighting for your rights. Additionally, my experience as a former prosecutor equips me with the skills and ability to spot weaknesses in the state's case against you and effectively present a strong defense.

In addition to my criminal defense and OWI/DWI practice, I also represent clients in family law cases, including divorce and child custody.
