Experience and Education


Designated one of Chicago's Top Lawyers - 2010, 2011, 2012 & 2016

Prior to entering private practice I served as a Marine Corps Officer and Judge Advocate, during which time I prosecuted and defended service members charged with criminal misconduct at courts martial. This early experience included acquittal of two clients charged with capital murder.

I promise thorough, thoughtful preparation and fearless, compassionate advocacy. After all these years, there is no other way I know of to provide clients with the service and results they deserve.
