About Me

I value above all else, attorney-client communication and keeping the client informed about what action I'm taking on the client's case.  You will not be a client whose phone call or email message goes unreturned.


I also value the client's financial concerns.  This firm will do everything possible to keep the client's legal fees reasonable.  While this firm will do everything in its power to keep attorney's fees down, the client also needs to understand much of that depends on the client's desires and whether or not the other side is trying to resolve the case using good faith efforts.


I promise that I will represent you zealously within the bounds of the law, and that you will be assured that I LISTEN!
