“Being a federal prosecutor, being a state prosecutor is a very difficult job. You’re in court all the time, you have to be able to think quickly on your feet, and you have to be prepared for a lot of cases that are all going to trial at around the same time. As a criminal defense attorney, I bring that same experience. I go, I prepare my cases one-hundred miles an hour as if we’re going to trial. I also prepare my cases and my clients in case we’re in front of the judge on an eventual plea. So we’re ready to go in either direction. Some people don’t prepare their clients that way. Some people are just preparing their clients as if they’re just going to plead guilty and the case is going to go away. But my cases are all preparing for trial because I have a lot of trial experience and when someone comes to me, that’s what they’re buying. That’s what they want, is someone who’s comfortable in court. Someone who’s comfortable on their feet, can quickly talk with a judge and prosecutor, can be in front of a jury. That’s what somebody wants from me.”
