About Me

If you are reading this "About Me" section you must be looking for a lawyer. Maybe you are worried, concerned, upset, or just wondering about a certain legal question. I have been a lawyer for over 20 years, and I know how confusing all of this can be to people. Pick up the telephone and call. In fact, you should call a lot of lawyers, and talk to as many lawyers as you can about your questions. Good luck.
