Being charged with a criminal offence is one of the most terrifying and dehumanizaing things that a person can experience. Every person and every case is unique. I will talk to you and find out what yourr priorities are, and from there I can use my knowledge, experience, and objectivity to explain how to best fulfill those priorities and get you out the other side. If you are being falsely accused I will tell your story. If your rights were violated I will do everything I can to make sure that the system is held accountable. And if you did do it then I will make sure that you are recognized as a human being who makes mistakes. You are more than the worst thing you have ever done.
