About me

Thanks for checking out my Avvo profile. When you call me, the first thing I will do is put your mind at ease. Legal problems are scary problems, but they don't have to be.  I have been a foster parent, a hospice volunteer and I enlisted in the military immediately following high school to put myself through college. Those experiences have instilled in me a can do, gotta do attitude that is essential for any great attorney.  I promise you that, working together, there is no problem we can't solve.  Give me a call.  I would love to talk to you.
