About Me

I represent clients who are plaintiffs in cases involving a wide variety of serious personal injury claims, such as motor vehicle accidents, work injuries, medical malpractice, product liability; as well as, denial of all types of insurance claims.  I have almost 25 years experience litigating.  I am a former Captain in the U.S. Marine Corps having served as a Judge Advocate (prosecutor) and Special Assistant U.S. Attorney with the Department of Justice.  I pride myself on assisting injured clients with achieving fair and maximum recoveries for their damages.  Myself and my staff are dedicated to providing prompt personal service to each and every client.
