Thrives on pressure. The more difficult the situation, the more committed he is to solving it.
6 years experience as a public defender. Has represented criminal defendants from many backgrounds and cultures. As a result, has a deep understanding of criminal psychology as well as broad knowledge of criminal activity, organization and techniques.
Has a stubborn streak. Took fewer plea deals than any other lawyer in the public defender's office. Prefers confrontation to compromise. Belief in clients is often used to justify this approach. This is an asset as well as a potential risk.
Has the occasional tendency to push the limit beyond what is necessary when a less confrontational solution might be found. Prefers direct solutions.
