As a former prosecutor and private defense attorney, I have experience on both sides—prosecution and defense. This unique experience enhances my ability to be fair and impartial, giving me a perspective that my opponent lacks. I have dedicated my career to public service, from the District Attorney’s Office to my pro bono work defending military veterans.
