He earned his Juris Doctorate in 1999 and went on to score in the top 1% of all attorneys in the nation on the Multistate Bar Exam.

He has obtained acquittals after jury trials on behalf of clients facing potential life sentences, accusations of criminal sexual conduct, and other difficult situations that many attorneys simply will not undertake.
