As well as being a Certified Criminal Law Specialist by the State Bar of Arizona, I am an active member of the following organizations:
I am rated a perfect 10 by AVVO. AVVO's mission is to help people make the best decisions for their important legal needs. Finding the right lawyer often comes at a critical time in life. Most people have no idea how to go about searching for an attorney, and resources that offer answers to questions are overwhelming and difficult to understand. AVVO has made it easier by rating lawyers. The rating is calculated using a mathematical model that considers elements such as years of experience, board certification, education, disciplinary history, professional achievement, and industry recognition-all factors that are relevant to assessing a lawyer’s qualifications.
The American Association of Premier DUI Attorneys (AAPDA)
The American Association of Premier DUI Attorneys (AAPDA) has compiled information from DUI Defense Attorneys to determine exactly what skills, knowledge, training, tools, resources, and strategies win the most DUI cases at trial and are also used to get DUI cases successfully resolved for the defense prior to trial. Members of the AAPDA have received advanced level training on these strategies and also have access to the resources and tools that are used to win and successfully resolve DUI cases, which are resources and tools that only a very small percentage of DUI attorneys have access to and utilize.
