I have lived in Tucson since 1963. I
graduated from Catalina High School, the University of Arizona and the
University of Arizona College of Law.
I have an honorable discharge from the
United States Army.
I have handled felony and
misdemeanor cases at the trial level for 44 Years, helping thousands of people
in the process.
I defend in the City Court,
Justice Court, Juvenile Court, Superior Court, Federal District Court, Federal
District Court of Appeals and the United States Supreme Court.
As a family law attorney I am firmly dedicated to protecting the interests of my clients and their families.
I will not charge you for an initial telephone consultation.
The bottom line is that I
will fight as zealously for your freedoms, liberties and constitutional rights
as I would for my friends, my family and my self.
