About Me

I have been a practicing litigation attorney for over thirteen years.  During that time I have focused my practice on client relationships.  For each of my clients, their litigation may be the most important aspect of their lives.  I strive to provide personal and attentive service to each of my clients to help them through their litigation experience.  Clients expect prompt service, phone calls returned and personal attention.  I use that relationship to keep my clients calm and engaged in their litiagion.  And of couse, I utilize all resources available to obtain excellent results on behalf of my clients.
