About Me

I represent people. The people I represent typcially are having problems with getting credit due to inaccurate credit reports or identity theft, have lost a job due to a background check, have unpaid overtime wages, violations of their rights to medical leave, discrimination or harassment at work or problems with debt collectors harassing them. I carefully select my cases with the philosopy of handling fewer cases, spending more time on them and getting better results.


 


Outside of work, I enjoy time with my family, running, skiing, biking and anything dealing with gadgets.
