I’ve been very fortunate. I do criminal defense work but I’ve had the experience in the past that I spent two and a half years working for the United States Attorney’s Office who prosecutes major federal offenses. I’ve also served as a judge over the last seven years and now I’m a criminal defense attorney. And so, I’ve had the opportunity to work in essence both sides of the streets as well as sit on the bench. It gives me a good perspective of criminal law in Arizona.
