About me

I was born and raised in Ky, the ninth of ten kids.  My parents stressed education, working hard and respect to all.


After law school I did insurance defense for about 7 years.  I represented most of the major insurance companies, some trucking companies and maunufacturers.  Seven years was enough for me to realize that helping people was more important than helping an insurnace company or manufacturer.


I have been representing injured person for over 16 of my 23 years as an attorney.  I have met some wonderful people, some of whom I still keep in touch with years later. 


My practices varies from year to year.  Many of my clients come from former clients referring my services.  I consider that a great honor and one that I do not take likely.  I also receive referrals from other attorneys seeking assitance in matters which may not be familiar to them or which may require resources they cannot afford. 


When not working, I try to spend time with my three daughters.  I enjoy returning to Ky for long weekends with family and friends.  This profession constantly gives me wake-up calls regarding just how precious are our friends and family.
