If you require my services, I will always be totally truthful with you regarding every aspect of your case, so you can make informed decisions.

There are too many attorneys who only tell their clients what they want to hear. When the expected outcome does not happen, the client may go off to jail--while the advising attorney gets to walk out of the courtroom.

I will do my absolute best to never put any client of mine in that situation. With me, you have my promise that I will be prepared, know the facts of your case, and be able to discuss what the evidence does and does not establish.

Knowing all of these things, I will counsel you as to what the best option is for you. It will always be your decision, but I will give you the best advice that I can to help you make that decision.
