About Me

"Representing injury victims at their greatest time of need, and helping them receive compensation for their medical bills, wage loss, and the loss of the enjoyment of life is the greatest honor and privilege I have ever known."


Over the past two and half decades  I have tried automobile, medical malpractice, liquore liability, employment and sex abuse cases. I feel that I am gifted at telling my clients' story with compassion and empathy and believe that jurors connect with me.  My success is a result of my sincere interest in my clients'problems and my commitment to communicating the facts and the law accurately.


I recognized that my clients are looking for both an advocate and a counselor in the litigation process. It can be very difficult to go through litigation and I take my role of leading clients through every phase of the process very seriously.


I have secured seven figure recoveries for clients in automobile, aviation, medical negligence, product liability and sexual assault cases.
