I was fortunate to serve as an Assistant District Attorney in Erie County from August 2009 until January 2015. In that position, among numerous other duties and experiences, I prosecuted approximately sixty jury trials to verdict, securing conviction in a high percentage of cases. These jury trials consisted of defendants charged with, among other more minor offenses, Homicide, Robbery, Firearm Possession, Felony Drug Possession and Delivery, Burglary, Aggravated Assault, Simple Assault, Theft and Driving Under the Influence.
While serving as a prosecutor I held a primary role in the Erie County Gun Task Force, I handled a high percentage of the felony drug cases, and I interacted on a daily basis with all members of law enforcement and the judiciary at both the Magisterial District Judge and Common Pleas Court level. This significant and detailed experience as a prosecutor has allowed me to get tremendous results for my clients because, quite frankly, I’ve been in the shoes of the representative from the Commonwealth. This gives me tremendous insight into the appropriate approach regardless of the unique circumstances of your case.
