About Me

I am a results-oriented lawyer who strives to obtain the best possible outcome for my clients. I always ask myself, "If I were the client, how would I want my case handled?" That's what helps drive me.

I have extensive trial court experience and focus my practice upon the following non-exclusive areas: medical malpractice and wrongful death (plaintiff), general personal injury (plaintiff), general civil litigation, and criminal defense.
