Lighting the Path to Truth

For over 30 years, I have dedicated my professional life to achieving justice.  I do this by digging into every aspect of a case with the help of the client, the client’s family,  investigators and experts.  I seek the truth and light the path to the truth for military commands, investigating officers,  law enforcement, prosecutors and juries.  Please take a look at my curiculum vitae, representative cases, client and judicial comments, and my military fitness reports to learn more about my work.
