About Me

It is my goal to provide first class representation and, as such, I am very selective when reviewing potential cases.  Likewise, I expect potential clients to be very selective when choosing a lawyer.  I believe the key distinction between a good lawyer and a great lawyer is that the great lawyer has compassion and genuinely cares for their clients.  I take cases personally and strive to treat my clients as I would like to be treated.  I am committed to maximizing the physical, emotional and financial recovery of each client that I have the honor of representing.


 


Please do not hesitate to contact me to discuss your potential case.
