About me

I pride myself on a personal approach to each and every client and case. Having always been with specialty firms representing the victims of medical malpractice, serious injury car crashes, truck crashes, serious burn cases and defective and unsafe products injuries, I continue this practice with straight forward and aggressive representation to seek the justice required. Personal injury requires personal attention.
