I am a solo practitioner dedicated to the vigorous defense of individuals facing criminal charges, drunk driving charges, or probation/parole revocations. I am passionate about what I do and I never back down from a fight. I have earned a solid reputation for negotiating significantly reduced charges, penalties, and dismissals while aggressively defending my clients against the power and resources of the State.
I try to take a personal interest in every person who calls me for help. I do my best to make sure they do not feel like they are just a case number or just another "defendant." I make the time to really listen to their side of things, their perspectives, and their concerns. I do my best to stay in touch, and I welcome my clients to do the same. They know they can call me 24/7 and that I am there for them 100%."Sydne was very informative and made me feel at ease from the moment we first met. I would definitely recommend her to anyone who may find themselves in a similar situation as I." K.S. (former client)"Sydne was always available to answer every question I had throughout the entire process, but most importantly she worked not just for me, but with me. I feel like this was the difference between just being a client, and being her client." R.E. (former client)"Sydne's commitment to her clients, to the ideal of justice, and to the goal of zealous representation is unparalleled."
