About me

I am a dedicated litigation attorney that specializes in criminal and civil matters through the trial process and on appeal. I have handled a variety of cases, ranging from contested divorces involving minor children and significant assets, to commercial litigation, to criminal trials ranging from misdemeanor drug possession to first degree murder.

I am also passionate about writing and integrating technology into the practice of law to produce better and more cost-effective results for my clients.
