About me

     I have been married for 20 years and am the father of three daughters.  I have strong ties to the community as I am involved in a number of local groups and projects.  I have coached local softball and basketball teams in the eastern suburbs for past ten years.  I use my strong family values in every facet of my legal practice to reach fair, reasonable and efficient results for my clients.
