I am currently a chief assistant in the Public Defenders office supervising the juvenile division, major crimes division, and homicide division. I supervise approximately thirty attorneys in four juvenile trial divisions and approximately ten certified legal interns. The major crimes attorneys are in all circuit courtrooms.
I am an experienced trial attorney specializing in Homicide cases including both the guilt and sentencing phases. My trial experience also includes Sexual Battery cases, general felonies, and misdemeanors. I presented Capital cases to the Grand Jury and made filing decisions on all other homicides. I negotiated cases resulting in plea bargains. I reviewed and assisted in writing search and arrest warrants.
