About me

I began my career representing large corporations, so I know the lengths they will go to in order to undercut an injured party's claim and to ensure the company's bottom line is protected. I now practice as a trial attorney protecting people injured by the negligence of others, whether by a vehicle accident, aviation disaster, or a disability. My clients' best interests are the important bottom line and that makes being an attorney worthwhile to me.
