About Me

Even before law school I was dedicated to helping and assisting people in seeking justice. Studying in Norther Ireland formed my early ideas regarding justice and rights. Since law school I have a dedicated track record of serving people as an advocate. My primary interests in law are civil rights litigation, Federal American Indian Law, Civil Litigation and family law. In each situation I am focused on the clients needs and goals and carve out a litigation strategy that will fit each person.
