I have been a champion for those victimized by offenders who prey on the weak and vulnerable. As an Assistant Commonwealth’s Attorney I started our office’s Domestic Violence Rapid Response Team and worked closely with the dedicated detectives of the Special Victims Unit.
I have argued for and won stiff sentences for husbands who brutalize their wives, family members who sexually abuse children and the unscrupulous who exploit the elderly. I have never lost a homicide case and I have never had a conviction overturned on appeal.
As an office, our prosecutors attend training to better understand the trauma endured by victims and work tirelessly with them to review and prepare their cases. We work closely with our Victim/Witness Specialists to equip victims to testify and give them the support they need to take the witness stand and confront the accused.
Our prosecutors are tenacious courtroom advocates, and whether before a jury or a judge, our goal is to see that justice is achieved and the voices of victims are heard.
