About me

I believe that the most important part of the attorney-client relationship is trust and honesty.  I strive to provide those qualities, and more, to each of my clients because I fully recongnize that my role has a direct impact on their personal life and well being.  I approach each case with this understanding and therefore work to protect their interests, especially their future interests.
