About Me

I have been a lawyer for over a decade and have helped hundreds of clients.  I can honestly say that I love my job.  Each day I have the opportunity to help my clients with very difficult and emotional issues.  While I am in court almost every week, I understand that my clients may never have been in a courtroom.  Knowing that, I always strive to help my clients understand the legal system, the issues, and all of their options.
