  • I represented the CFO of a local business charged with various counts of fraud related to Department of Agriculture grants. We got an acquittal on some counts and a 30 day jail sentence for the remaining counts with no restitution ordered.
  • I represented a client in a conspiracy to avoid cigarette taxes. The losses to the Municipality were approximately two million dollars. My client got a probationary sentence and did not have to pay any restitution.
  • Got a probationary sentence for a client involved in a large international drug conspiracy. My client had a professional license. After the criminal case was over, the State sought to revoke his professional license. I represented him in the license revocation proceedings and he will be placed on probation for his professional license as well. That is, he gets to keep his professional license.
  • Obtained a dismissal on child pornography charges in a case involving almost 400 images
  • Persuaded a court to suppress DNA test results in the first sexual assault case in Alaska that used Y-STR DNA testing;
  • Persuaded a court to suppress a large amount of methamphetamine and over $40,000 seized in an unlawful traffic stop
  • Persuaded a court to suppress six pounds of marijuana seized at the airport
  • In a case involving multiple tape-recorded sales of heroin, negotiated a sentence that saved his clients literally decades in prison
  • In a case involving multiple tape-recorded sales of crack cocaine, obtained a sentence of approximately five years less than what the government sought
  • Recently got a court to suppress cocaine and guns because I proved the police officer lied on the search warrant affidavit. The client was the son of a paralegal in a large law firm. A former prosecutor at the firm recommended he hire me.
  • Negotiated a no jail time misdemeanor offer for a client charged with bringing a firearm into a federal courthouse.
  • Negotiated a federal terrorism charge to a simple misdemeanor for an official at a U.N. NGO.
