About me

Many of my respected colleagues have been lawyers their entire life, or at least since the age of 23. I worked in another career field for 17 years before entering the Bar. I retired as a police detective after law school in order to begin a new chapter, yet continue to help those in need, just in another capacity. It is my belief, this life experience provides me with a different perspective than what many of my fellow attorneys possess. I often referred to my law enforcement career as a front seat looking through the windshield of life. I experienced situations and difficulties first hand that many fellow lawyers only read about in their case files. I have seen the pain of broken relationships, the agony of those in car accidents and disputes that arise out of a plethra of family issues.

After all, if you were looking to have your car repaired, would you have reservations if your mechanic never drove a car? Sure, by reading the manual and attending courses he would be qualified to work on your car, but would he understand the complaints and problems you had about how the car was driving? A little silly anecdote, yet it does seem to make sense if you are experiencing troubles of your own. Sometimes it is important for the person helping you to have real life experience in order to truly understand where you are coming from.

Now, if you are looking for water in an Evian bottle, or antique paintings in the front office; that isn't me nor how I do business. However, if you are looking for a common sense approach, brutal honesty about your case, and an attorney that will not pawn you off to a paralegal staff; perhaps my services are what you are looking for.
