About me

Thanks for stopping by my Avvo page! Here is a little background on me:


I grew up on Chicago's South Side. After High School I became a Paradmedic and worked in the city for about five years, attending college in the evenings. In 2000, I was looking for a change of pace and enlisted in the U.S. Air Force. I served for nearly ten years as a Chinese Linguist and Intelligence Analyst, stationed at various bases throughout the country. 


I attended the Washington College of Law at American University in Washington D.C. I am married with five children, and am currently pursuing a certification in Financial Planning to assist in my Estate Planning practice. I have working in civil litigation, real estate, and estate planning for the past five years, and am very apssionate about what I do.
