"Properly defending your charges requires more than my thorough understanding of the law. I must tailor your defense to address your specific needs in addition to your specific facts. I need to get to know you and your personal situation before I can properly defend you in court. Proper representation is not measured by wins and losses. It is about getting you the best possible result. Whether a Not Guilty verdict at trial, getting the charges dismissed, or simply advocating and negotiating the best possible outcome to your case, successfully representing you means you are fully satisfied that I did everything possible to get you the best possible result in your case."
