The court system is stressful, whether you’re being charged with a crime, being sued, suing someone, or fighting for your ability to stay and work in this country. You need someone who appreciates this and can dedicate the time not only to represent you effectively in court but to guide you through the process.I believe in doing this for every person I represent. If I don’t have time to represent you right, then I don’t have time to represent you. I don’t believe in representing someone half way – if I agree to take your case, I will do it right, no matter how much time it takes, no matter how big or how small the case is.More than anything, I will take your case personally. I believe representing you is not just a business transaction – it’s something that will affect you for the rest of your life, and I will treat it that way.

I'm not scared of going to court - practically every day, I go to court to fight for my clients. I proudly fight for my clients whether they have a DUI, domestic violence charge, a divorce, a drug charge, or any other sort of case that requires a court appearance.If you need a lawyer who will fight for you in the courtroom and take the time to guide you through the process, call me and let’s get to work.My practice is headquartered in Boston, Massachusetts. I practice criminal defense, immigration, and domestic relations law in all Massachusetts courts. I also handle criminal appeals in Alabama.
