Michael B. Roberts

From an early age I knew that I wanted to represent the criminally accused.  The interaction between people, the police, and the courts always fascinated me.   There are no higher stakes than fighting to save a person’s freedom and in some instances their life.
I think that the American Prison System has failed.  Far too many people are incarcerated for non-violent offenses and drug crimes.  More resources need to be spent on education and rehabilitation and less money on incarceration.
I recognize that people make mistakes and they deserve second chances.  All too often the police, prosecutors and judges, just want to rush through a case and go directly to punishment. As an advocate for the criminally accused, it’s my honor to tell the story of my client.  Often defendants are over-charged and there is usually an explanation for what they did.  It’s my job to slow the process down, to investigate the case, to talk to my clients, and to get the judge or the jury to listen.
