Can any criminal lawyer defend you in federal criminal court?

Let me begin by saying that I hope I'm the right guy to help you in federal criminal court. I recognize that I am not the right lawyer for everybody. I encourage you to keep looking until you are sure that you've found the right person to entrust with your freedom.

I also hope that your case is one that I am interested in taking. I take fewer than half the cases that are presented to me. This permits me to keep my practice small and only represent the people whose stories I feel compelled to tell.

I would rather not be hired at all than be hired by someone for whom I am the wrong lawyer or someone who is the wrong client for me. If I sense that there is something that might get in the way of the client-lawyer relationship, I don't hesitate to recommend some other well-qualified lawyers who might be able to help better than me.

My best client is a well-informed one. I am sure that you recognize that all lawyers' web pages -- mine included -- are advertisements, and that the contents should be taken with a grain of salt. To help us both make sure that there is a fit between us, I've done my best to tell the truth about what you can expect from federal criminal court and from me. I believe you'll find that you can take the information here with a smaller grain of salt than the information you'll find elsewhere.

If you have a question, comment, or quibble about anything I say here, please don't hesitate to contact me. If I have said something the least bit misleading or inaccurate, I will rush to fix it and you will have my gratitude. If I had to be anything less than honest to get hired, I wouldn't want the job.
