About Me

"The way that  I represent my clients is pretty simple really. I treat my clients the way that I'd want to be treated if I were in their shoes.  I listen to my clients carefully and then help them define reasonable goals and expectations. Then I work to the best of my ability to achieve the goals we establish. Sometimes those goals can be achieved outside of the courthouse. Sometimes it is necessary for a Judge to decide the issues. But in every instance, my clients know that they have a hard-working, honest and experienced attorney on their side."
