About me

I am a sole practitioner and I concentrate my practice in workers' compensation, motor vehicle accidents, and Social Security Disability claims. 


 


Now, more than ever, due to the recent changes in the law, people need quality legal representation for their Workers' Compensation claims. With my extensive focus in the field of Workers' Compensation, I have developed in-depth experience in handling the medical and legal aspects of work injures, including fractures, trauma, carpal tunnel and other overuse injures, occupational diseases and fatal claims. I also handle Social Security and motor vehicle accidents.
