About Me

Thank you for your interest in my professional profile.  My professional practice is dedicated solely to representing injured people.  As such, I handle personal injury cases that include:  medical malpractice, motor vehicle accidents, construction injuries, falls, wrongful deaths, defective products etc.  Because my practice is specialized I am very familiar with the law and medicine.  If you take a look at my website you will see that I have been very successful in my practice.  


I also have a very strong work ethic.  I truly enjoy my work and helping people so I regularly work nights and weekends by choice.  My clients also have access to me whenever they have questions or need assistance.  When I go to trial, I am quite confident that I will always be more prepared than opposing counsel.  


On a personal level, I am married and have a son and daughter.  The personal activities I enjoy are exercising, spending time with the family, technology, and mixed martial arts.
