Criminal Defense


If you, your spouse or child are arrested, summonsed or charged with a crime, your life will be forever changed.  You are entering a world run by complicated rules, and by prosecutors, judges and police. If you do not understand the rules, very bad things can happen to you.

I have been defending people accused of crime for over twenty years. I can explain to you what is likely to happen in your case. I can evaluate the evidence against you, advise you what your chances would be to win at trial and either defend you at a trial or, if you prefer, negotiate with the prosecutor.

Whether you are charged with a misdemeanor, such as theft, assault or OUI – DWI, or with a felony such as a drug offense, sex offense, habitual offender, burglary, aggravated assault, manslaughter or murder, chances are I have handled a case similar to yours before and can offer you the counsel and advocacy you need to get through this very difficult time in your life.

My office is in Springvale, in York County, Maine, but I also work in Cumberland and Oxford Counties in Maine, as well as Stratham and Rockingham Counties in New Hampshire. The consultation is always free in criminal cases. If you have a legal problem, call the office and schedule a time for us to talk. You’ll be happy you did.
