Summary

I grew up throughout the Southeastern United States. I attended college at Furman University in Greenville, South Carolina and I graduated with a B.A. in political science and philosophy. I moved to Minnesota in 1999 to attend the University of Minnesota law school and I decided stay after I graduated. Following graduation, I clerked for a Hennepin County Judge and then took a job with the Stearns County Public Defender's Office. I have been in private practice since 2016.

My practice involves representing people charged with crimes as well as individuals dealing with issues surrounding Orders for Protection and Harassment Restraining Orders - both petitioners and respondents. I am here to help with the collateral consequences as well including, but not limited to, driver's license revocations, motor vehicle forfeiture, employment concerns and more. Please contact me and I am available for a free consultation regarding whatever legal issues you might be facing.

Q. I got a cell phone ticket a week ago. When I went to pay, it said it was my second offense. It wasn't. How do I fix this
A: Of course officers make mistakes. It's hard to know why it is listed as your second violation without more information. I'd suggest getting an attorney on board and the attorney can help sort this issue out. You certainly don't want something to show up, particularly if it wasn't you.
Q. I was at a stop sign and got Tboned when I proceeded into the intersection after looking both ways. It was difficult to
A: It’s unclear to me whether you are criminally charged or just dealing with the insurance aspect of this. The insurance company should not be contacting you directly, instead their insurance company should be discussing the matter with your insurance company. Ultimately, the decision of who to believe here would be up to the fact finder - ie the judge or the jury at a trial.
Q. Hello wondering if my probation officer has legal rights to extend my probation? My fines paid. Contacts me 2 month late
A: You should directly contact a criminal defense attorney. There are times when probation can be extended. A violation can also be filed up to sixth months after probation has expired. But you cannot be violated for substances that you’ve been prescribed.
