After graduating law school, I went to work for the Wayne County (Detroit) Public Defenders' Office. I tried every imaginable case: murder, carjacking, armed robbery, assault cases, theft cases, a disinterment case (!)--all with not guilty verdicts each time. Naturally, I negotiated many plea agreements with the prosecutors' office and the Court. These plea agreements were outstanding. My clients are set apart. I work with them on their cases, I work with them on their personal matters and I give them my devoted time.
Now, after over 25 years of criminal defense practice, I have the same fire I had day one at the Defenders' Office. I fight my cases. Today I have gun, drug, RICO and explosives cases in federal court and I have a couple sex crime cases and DUIs in state court, to name the ones that immediately come to my attention. Most are set for trial or dispositive motions. I have confidence in them and can report back to you, if you're interested.
Essentially, I love my work and think it is a privilege to speak for those who can not be heard.
