Always Better To Have a Defense Attorney That Can Talk to a Jury

It is funny to think that a criminal defense attorney would be afraid to talk to a jury, but I have witnessed many attorneys crack under the pressure. It takes a confident and self-aware person to be able to hold back nervousness with 12 strangers looking at them while they speak. I am no stranger to the feeling of 12 sets of eyes watching me and judging me. It is how I handle the pressure that distinguishes me from my colleagues. I do not fight the nervousness, I use it to my advantage. I channel it as a way to fuel my arguments and bring my client to life before their eyes.

If an attorney tells you they are never nervous, be afraid. Someone who isn’t nervous when their client’s freedom is at stake doesn’t care about their client. Nervousness equals caring. Add to that caring experience in public speaking and you have a winning combination. I have successfully argued for my client’s before a jury of his/her peers and been successful. I pride myself on being able to tell my client’s story with compassion and competence.

If you or someone you know is charged with a crime and need an advocate who will fight for your rights, call me today. I have tried cases successfully in counties across New Jersey including Middlesex County, Somerset County, Union County, Monmouth County and Essex County.
