About Me

    The practice of law has taken me many geographical places and I've all types of interesting cases.  My firm carefully selects their cases in order to give them the indvidual attention they need.


     Personally, I'm always looking for the balance of life.  It is achieved through time with my family. 


    A few years ago I got involved in ultra marathon running.  I've run 50ks, 50 miles, and a 100 mile ultramarathon.  While running, it lets my mind process thoughts and the physical fitness it brings me makes me a better attorney.
