Defense Across the Spectrum of Criminal Charges

Whether you've been charged with a misdemeanor or felony in Warwick, you need an attorney on your side ready to stand up for you. With an intimate understanding of Rhode Island's criminal justice system, I will fight to protect your rights and give you hope for the future. In even the most complicated cases, defenses can be raised to challenge the prosecutor's accusations. Knowing how the other side thinks and prepares, I work to identify weaknesses in proof and develop arguments aimed at casting doubt on the evidence against my clients.

I have over 25 years of legal experience in the Rhode Island criminal justice system. Throughout that time, I have handled nearly every criminal matter under state law, including misdemeanors, such as shoplifting and DUI, and felonies, such as sexual assault and burglary. I have also guided clients through probation violation hearings, fought to protect driving privileges after a breathalyzer refusal, and sought second chances for my clients through expungement. I have the knowledge, skills, and resources to help with your case.

Many criminal matters are favorably resolved out of court.  As such, I will initially seek an optimal outcome by negotiating a deal with the prosecutor. However, I am always ready to present your case at trial if necessary.

My Promise To You I founded my Warwick criminal defense practice on the premise of improving my clients' situations. When a potential client comes to me, they often feel worried about the justice system's unknowns and the potential penalties for their alleged crime. I help relieve some of these initial tensions. I explain the process for resolving the case and the defenses that could be raised to fight charges. Additionally, I take care of the legalities involved, attending to the details and allowing my clients to focus on what's important to them. I have a track record of results, and while there are no guarantees in criminal law, I work relentlessly on behalf of my clients.
