About Me

I have been in the private practice of law since 1997.  In that time I have handled virtually every sort of litigation, from simple to complex.  I have tried and settled cases in both the State and Federal Courts, with several six figure verdicts.


 


Presently, I focus my practice mostly in the areas of family law, divorce law, bankryuptcy and real estate transactions and litigation.
