If the glove don't fit, you must acquit... Ring a bell?

Quick: Where were you on October 3, 1995 when the verdict for the O.J. Simpson trial was announced? Whether you were a pre-teen or well into your adult years, everyone I ask seems to have some kind of recollection of that day. One woman who was only 9-years-old at the time fondly remembers her mother jumping up and down in the living room in celebration of the beloved American icon being found not guilty. Another person who was in his mid-twenties during the verdict announcement recalls sitting at the bar, downing a shot of whiskey as he lost all hope for the justice system.

Whether you were pro- or anti- O.J., the case formally known as People of State of California v. Orenthall James Simpson was a game changer for the country as a whole. From the slow-speed chase in that unforgettable white Bronco to his release, this event was among the first in which criminal cases had entertainment value, as sick as that may be. From trials like The Menendez Brothers and JonBenet Ramsey to Casey Anthony and several others, Americans found a new guilty pleasure (pun intended) that all started with O.J.

Everyone makes mistakes and everyone deserves a second chance. That’s what I fight for.


The case impacted me, too — but in a much different way. For me, it wasn't about entertainment. It was about my career. Yes, the O.J. Simpson trial was what led me to study law and ultimately to become a criminal defense attorney. The tenacity, courage, and wit of O.J.'s legal team opened my mind to explore law and shaped my decision to build my own firm.

With that being said, you'll soon discover just how fierce my capabilities are as a criminal defense attorney as we work on your case. On the one hand, I'm your friend and a loyal support during this difficult and trying time. On the other hand, I'm a tough litigator ready to fight tirelessly in efforts of working towards results that work to your favor. Even if your case doesn't go to trial, I'm ready for all possibilities. Because of this balance between understanding counsel and fearless defender of your freedom, you'll always feel like your best interest is a number one priority — because it is.

Time is valuable and there's none of it to waste. If you're in the Omaha, Nebraska area, schedule a consultation with me today to get started.
