About Me

I am a truly dedicated and hardworking professional. I paid my way through college and law school working in my Dry Cleaning Business. I worked full time and went to school full time. Sleeping on average less than 3 hours per night. I bring this unique working man background and work ethic to the practice of law. I never loose sight of how lucky I am to do what I do and more importantly I never loose sight of the tremendous responsibility I have to you, my clients.
