About me

I have a client-focused practice which is unlike any you'll experience elsewhere. Unlike many practicing lawyers, I matured and experienced much in life prior to going to law school, having succeeded at several other careers before becoming a lawyer. Each of those steps taught me skills that are directly applicable to helping people with any legal problems they may be experiencing. Few events in life are as daunting as having a legal problem and not finding help in the system. That's why you need a lawyer with plenty of life experience as well as legal experience. I relate well with people of all backgrounds, and I bring that personal touch to my practice. If you are dealing with a legal issue, or one in which you feel there might be a solution in the legal system, please contact me to discuss how I might be able to help you.
