About Me

I opened the KMA Law Office in 2010 as a general practice firm that focuses on: automobile and work injury claims, wills, trusts, estate planning and administration, and collections. KMA Law Office is a full service law firm which also assists individuals and business in the areas of foreclosures and debt collections.

I stay on top of the current issues and changes in the law with continuing legal education seminars on a regular basis. I started working in the legal legal profession over 20 years, as a paralegal in 1990, working with attorneys in the areas of criminal law, family law, personal injury and medical malpractice.
