Conducting Thorough Investigations
Since 1973, I have defended individuals accused of damaging criminal allegations. If you are charged with DUI manslaughter or vehicular homicide, you likely feel helpless. But, remember, an arrest does not translate into a conviction.
As your criminal defense attorney, I will devote substantial resources into determining if law enforcement has a real case against you. My investigative approach includes analyzing product recall notices to understand if a break failure or tire defect possibly led to the tragic accident. When appropriate, I consult accident reconstructionists to review property damage and uncover any contradictions in the prosecution's evidence.
I also evaluate evidence to make sure the charges fit the crime allegedly committed. I am prepared to fight for the charges to be greatly reduced if allegations of alcohol use are invalid.
Focused on Mitigating Criminal Penalties
A vehicular homicide conviction carries serious penalties including possible jail time, hefty fines, suspended driver's license, and a permanent criminal record. My extensive experience in the criminal justice system has helped me gain credibility as a skilled negotiator.
I am prepared to seek a reduced sentence through showing you had no intent to harm other motorists. I will also negotiate for less jail time in exchange for community service or treatment in an alcohol awareness or anger management program.
