Partial List of Client Testimonials


Criminal Defense:

  • “When I was accused of raping my girlfriend, my whole world fell apart. She made up the whole story out of revenge because I was interested in someone else, but the police and DA believed her. If it weren’t for you proving me innocent, God knows what might have happened to me.”

    - Z.B.

  • “My boyfriend and I had a simple argument, and because the tenants across the hall heard us, they called the police. The next thing I knew, I was in a squad car, arrested for domestic violence. Especially being a woman, it was humiliating. You never gave up on me, and convinced the jury I was telling the truth. I can’t thank you enough.”

    - M.B.

  • “I’ve suffered from horrific migraines all my life, and doctors haven’t been able to do anything but prescribe addictive drugs that did little good. Non-addictive mushrooms eliminate my pain and have saved my life – but the police who found them on me didn’t care about this, and neither did the prosecutors. You proved that what the police did was inadmissible, and for that I will always be grateful.”

    - D.C.

  • “In my worst nightmares, I would never have dreamed that as a parent I would be accused of child abuse. But because I mildly disciplined my child for throwing a tantrum, I was arrested and charged with child abuse. You fought tooth and nail, until I was declared not guilty. As far as I’m concerned, you’re a hero.”

    - D.D.

  • “My neighbor suffers from cancer. She ran out of her pain meds one day, and because I also take prescription pain medication for a serious back injury, I gave her a couple of pills until she could get to her doctor again. The police stopped her in her car and found one of the pills on her without a prescription, and she had to tell them that I gave them to her. The next thing I knew, I was arrested and dragged into court on charges of drug distribution. You fought until the judge ruled me innocent. If not for you, my name would have been ruined forever.”

    - J.G.

  • “Just because I complimented a co-worker on her looks and touched her back, I was accused of indecent assault & battery. You fought like hell until the charges were dropped. If it weren’t for you, I would have been convicted, and been forced to register as a sex offender. I’ll never be able to thank you enough.”

    - A.K.

  • “I’ve lost a lot in my life, and I dealt with it by shoplifting – and one day, I got caught. I was humiliated, and if convicted I would have lost my job in the financial industry. I know what I did was wrong, but you somehow worked out a dismissal. I have my future back, and I owe you an enormous debt of gratitude.”

    - A.C.

  • “I’m a high-functioning female executive and not a problem drinker. But one night after a business dinner at which I had two drinks in 2 hours’ time, I was stopped by police for failing to signal a turn. The officer smelled alcohol on my breath, and in 2-inch heels required me to walk heel-to-toe in the dark. I was arrested and charged with drunk driving. You proved that I was not intoxicated, and saved my career.”

    – L.B.

  • "When I was arrested for DUI, I was absolutely terrified. I'd never been arrested before, for anything never mind drunk driving, and I am not a problem drinker. It just so happened that a police officer stopped me for not signaling at a traffic stop, and I had just left my friend's house, where I had one and a half beers. But because the officer smelled the beer on my breath, and because I was so nervous outside the car, he arrested me for drunk driving. Had it not been for you, I might have been convicted of something I was not at all guilty of. My work life, my family life, my reputation, all could have been destroyed. You stood by me like the legal version of a bodyguard - and because of you, I was found not guilty. Really, I cannot thank you enough. Every innocent person in such a situation should be so lucky as to get you for their lawyer."

    - G.M.

  • "Our son was arrested for possession of a small amount of marijuana. He's a good kid, and he was just experimenting, but if he was ever convicted, that conviction would have followed him for the rest of his life. It would have even disqualified him from getting federal student loans. Our friends who suggested we call you, did us a bigger favor than anyone else has ever done. Because of you, our son walked out of that courtroom without any conviction, or record. You are one talented attorney. Our son was lucky to have you by his side, and we are forever grateful."

    - J.D. and D.D.

  • "Without my car, I'm useless to my employer because I'm an outside salesperson. When a state trooper stopped me for speeding on Route 128, I wasn't able to stop right away because I needed to switch lanes and other cars were in front of me. Because of this, the trooper cited me for "failure to stop for a police officer", and cited me for speeding also. Worse, the trooper had only estimated my speed, not clocked me on radar or used any more accurate technology. Because of a prior speeding offense, I could have had my license suspended. You walked me through the whole process, argued my case like a pro, and I walked out not guilty of both charges, and with my drivers' license intact. If my case had come out the other way, I might have lost my job, so believe me, I can't thank you enough. You were worth every dollar of your fee, and more."

    - J.D.

  • "As parents of a college-aged son, we constantly remind him to be careful when out at nightclubs and parties. You never know what can happen, but we thought the last person to start trouble with him would be a security person at a nightclub - the very people who are supposed to prevent trouble. The bouncer that accused our son of assault and battery was blatantly trying to cover up the fact that he attacked our son first, mistakenly thinking that he was someone else who had started trouble a few nights earlier. Our son was the victim of this crime, yet he was arrested and charged with assault and battery. Without you by his side, he might not only have been convicted, but convicted of something he was completely innocent of. The three of us owe you more than we can say. Thank you."

    - E.J. and B.J.

  • "When we got the call that our son had been arrested and charged with rape, we almost fainted. We know our son. He is not violent; he has never abused anyone, let alone another girl. Yet there he was, a criminal defendant charged with a horrible crime. Because of your investigative skills and legal talent, you showed the jury the truth: That the girl who accused him had fabricated the whole story, to cover up for the fact that she engaged in consensual sex with our son, and lied because word had gotten back to her parents, who are very religious. If not for you and your "take no prisoners" attitude, our son might have been convicted of a crime that would have sent him to state prison. As far as we're concerned, our son owes you his life, and we owe you the world. We will never forget you."

    - A.H. and P.H.
