- I have been licensed as an Arizona Attorney since 1987. I began my career as a Criminal Defense Lawyer in Tucson, Pima County, Arizona in 1987 as an Assistant Public Defender. I loved my work! However, after I received an offer to work as a private law firm in Cochise County, I relocated to Sierra Vista in 1998. During my 27 + years as a lawyer I have worked predominantly as a Criminal Defense Attorney. This has included defending both adult and juvenile clients on both felony and misdemeanor charges. I also previously served as municipal prosecutor for the cities of Tombstone and Bisbee.
- I established my own law firm in 2005. From 2005 – 2014 almost all of my work was as a “court-appointed” lawyer. I was appointed on Adult Criminal cases and on Juvenile Delinquency cases. I was also court-appointed to represent children or parents on Juvenile Dependencies (child welfare) cases. As of 2014 I began taking on private-paying Criminal Defense clients. This change has created new opportunities for me to help people with their criminal issues. My main focus is on Driving Under the Influence (DUI), Domestic Violence, Drug and Driving Violation cases (e.g.: Driving on a Suspended License, Reckless Driving, Criminal Speeding), although I welcome and enjoy all criminal cases. These are types of cases that a lot of everyday hard-working people get charged with. Good people who just have a lapse in judgement or make the wrong decision.
