“Unlike in large criminal defense firms, where the senior lawyer commonly hands off a new file to an inexperienced associate, I only accept a client’s case when I have the time and resources to invest 100 percent of my efforts. If I can’t personally handle your case, then I won’t take your case. I make it my personal mission to achieve the best possible result for each client. Providing my clients with compassionate and aggressive representation is important to me, since I understand the psychological toll that a criminal charge can have on a person.” Ann
