I’ve been a licensed attorney since 2002 and have advanced training in trial advocacy. I’ve worked in both criminal and civil legal environments, both as a prosecutor and as a private attorney. I’ve also trained hundreds of future criminal justice professionals as an instructor and have developed continuing legal education programs for attorneys.
