2013 The National Trial Lawyers: Top 100 Trial Lawyers
"I started out in life with a belief that our profession in its highest walks afforded the most noble employment in which any man could engage, and I am of the same opinion still ... To be a priest, and possibly a high priest, in the temple of justice, to serve at her altar and aid in her administration, to maintain and defend those inalienable rights of life, liberty, and property upon which the safety of society depends, to succor the oppressed and to defend the innocent, to maintain constitutional rights against all violations ... to rescue the scapegoat and restore him to his proper place in the world --- all this seemed to me to furnish a field worthy of any man's ambition."
---J. CHOATE, Farewell to the English Bar: Speech at a Dinner Given in His Honor by the Bench and Bar of England, at Lincoln's Inn, London, April 14, 1905, in Arguments and addresses of Joseph Hodges Choate 1109 (F. Hicks ed. 1926).
In the tradition of Joseph Choate, I seek to provide high quality full service representation to clients charged with complex criminal offenses. I have successfully established a nationally recognized reputation for my legal representation of DUI (driving under the influence/ drunk driving) cases as well as serious traffic offenses, and I am often engaged or consulted by other lawyers in the legal profession because of my expertise in this area.
I know that clients value lawyering that is creative, pragmatic, cost effective and successful. Pretrial, my attention and efforts are focused on pleadings, discovery, motions, strategy and the most effective ways of presenting testimony and other evidence at trial given the legal issues involved in the cases. At trial, I serve as your champion!
The issue is really straight forward: You can hire a lawyer who will read the book, or you can hire the lawyer who wrote the book!
