From courtroom to courtroom, county to county, I stand up for people that most others are ready to condemn. I go in front of judges and juries trying to win with nothing but my training, experience, and wits. Why? I do it because I get to be a shield for my client when the world comes crashing down on him. I do it because I get to be a fighter for the rights that we often take for granted. I do it because I get to be an advocate for a cause that is bigger than myself — keeping the government in check. Shield. Fighter. Advocate. I value the opportunity to be all these things.
