The Importance of a Good Defense

With any kind of criminal case, time is of the essence. Although this can be a confusing and frightening experience, it’s important that you act quickly and allow a qualified lawyer to take on some of the stress for you and your family.

What makes a lawyer “qualified,” you ask? Well, a qualified lawyer is one who will be able to sit down, evaluate your case, and — regardless of how complex your case may be — come up with a realistic and workable plan of action to improve your situation. In some cases, this could mean getting your charges dismissed completely, while in others it may mean getting your charges reduced, penalties minimized, or probation extended. It all depends on your unique circumstances.
As you can imagine, it takes years of experience to reach the level of efficiency and effectiveness that a criminal defense case requires. Fortunately for you, I’ve been at this for a long time. Since 2003, I have worked closely with the criminally accused throughout northern West Virginia. And — as my previous clients could tell you — I have a knack for getting real results.

Throughout the course of my career, I have successfully defended clients against just about every kind of criminal charge you can think of: traffic tickets, drug possession, DUIs, furnishing alcohol to minors, underage drinking, juvenile crimes, fake IDs, hit and runs, campus crimes, probation violation, theft, arson, date rape, violent crimes — the list goes on.

Your Case Is My Top Priority

There are, I think, a few key reasons why I have been able to achieve consistently favorable results on behalf of my clients. First and foremost, I’m genuinely invested in their future. No matter what they were accused of doing, I truly want to help them get to a better place in life.

Second, I’m not afraid of hard work. Defending someone against a criminal charge isn’t an easy task. It takes a lot of thorough investigating, collecting evidence, and performing research. I don’t shy away from any of that. In fact, I embrace it.

Finally, I learn from my past experience. I believe that no matter how many cases you’ve won, you should always strive to improve. In my line of work, this commitment to improvement can mean the fate of my client’s very freedom. And that’s a responsibility I take very seriously.

Everyone is entitled to adequate defense, regardless of their background or alleged crime.


There’s a lot you can learn online in order to prepare for your case, but really, the best thing you can do right now is get expert advice. Let’s start with a free meeting.


West Virginia has a number of laws specific to criminal cases involving minors. I make sure my clients of all ages are well-represented according to these laws.


I’m not one to discriminate. I’ll take cases that range from traffic ticket defense to homicide investigations. If it’s a criminal charge, I’m prepared to defend it.
