About me

I think my ability to work with a variety of individuals is the result of many of life's experiences, not merely as a lawyer for the past 38 years, but as a husband, father of three, and now grandfather of one (june 16, 2015), my relationship with my extended family and network of friends I have met over the years, many of whom I have known since I was in grade school.


I also think that work that I did during summer vacations starting when I was 15 years old introdcued me to all kinds of people.  Starting when I worked as a cashier at a fast food chain, a newspaper distributing company from midnight to eight every Sunday morning throughout high school, as a merchant seaman for several summer and winter vacations during college for the SunOil Transport Company and lastly as a bartender for the DuPont Country Club and Hotel gave me experiences that you just can't learn in school.


Relating to people on an individual level is what I like most about the law practice I have which gives me great pleasure when I am able to truly make someone's life better after tragic accidents.
