My Experiences Set Me Apart

I am proud to say that I began my legal career at NASA, specifically the Johnson Space Center in Houston. Dealing with some of the most complex contracts in any industry, as well as international law and the scrutiny of a government organization, forged me into the determined and knowledgeable attorney I am today. When my clients come to me for support in all manners of criminal defense cases and accusations, they know that I, and that I have learned from my years of experience, will be there to defend them.

I have also received professional recognition throughout my career. I have been granted a perfect 10.0 “Superb” Avvo rating for DUI advocacy, a system that primarily uses peer reviews from other members of the legal community for grading. I am a member of the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, a prestigious group comprised defense attorneys dedicated to advancing how criminal trials are conducted to ensure that justice remains fair and balanced. I have also been selected to The National Trial Lawyers Top 100 Trial Lawyers, an achievement given yearly to a select few in each state.

Arrested for DUI in Tulsa?

In my experience providing criminal defense strategies for people all across Oklahoma, I have discovered that out of all the potential criminal violations on the books, driving under the influence (DUI) may very well be the most common. The police are so intent on pulling over and citing people with this crime, even the innocent have been locked up and lost their driving privileges. For this reason, I have deliberately focused much of my practice on the defense of those arrested for a DUI. I believe that without steadfast and tenacious legal counsel present in the courtroom for the defendant, the criminal justice system feels free to treat and sentence people however it likes. This is simply not acceptable, and I am honored to be able to help keep it in check for the benefit of my clients.

DUI defense strategies that I may be able to use include:

Unlawful stop: When a highway patrol officer pulls someone over, they must have valid reason to do so. In a DUI case, they must have reasonable suspicion to believe that the driver was intoxicated; the same is true for sobriety checkpoints along Tulsa and Oklahoma highways. If you were pulled over unlawfully, the arrest and any evidence gathered from it could be deemed inadmissible.

Unspoken Miranda warning: In addition to needing a valid reason to pull you over in the first place, your case could be thrown out if the arresting officer never read your Miranda warning, or rights. “You have the right to remain silent […]”

Unreliable field sobriety tests: Many DUI arrests occur due to the “evidence” the officer collects while a suspect takes a field sobriety test, such as standing on one leg or walking a straight line without teetering. Tests like these are infamous for their unreliability, so much so that you actually have the right to refuse them without any immediate legal consequence.

Uncalibrated chemical tests: Law enforcement likes to claim that chemical tests – blood, breath, or alcohol – are infallible since they rely on a computer to generate a number based on your blood alcohol concentration (BAC) level. Do not be fooled. If the machines are not calibrated precisely, it can easily product a result much higher than what is real.
