Criminal Defense Lawyer

Comment #: CA1631
Solid judge who will read your papers and the cases. Strong hand in the courtroom. Strikes the right balance of allowing people to speak when they need to be heard, but controlling the courtoorm and shutting people up when it's time. Bright and insutrious, good draw for either side.
