About Me

I grew up in a big family with seven kids. We did not have a lot of
money. When I became a lawyer, I quickly realized that there were too
many lawyers for insurance companies and Big Corporations and not enough
lawyers fighting for the hard working people I knew and grew up with. I
decided very early in my career to use my energy as a lawyer to give
regular people and small business owners a voice by telling their
stories in court
