About me

I have been married since 1986 and have been a father since 1991. Between these events I became an attorney in 1989. I have lived in Northern and Central Illinois. I am as familiar with concrete under my feet as I am with driving along the shore of the sea of corn. I have worked with people as varied as doctors, teachers and farmers.


I have represented ordinary people in areas from family court, juvenile court, to criminal court, all the possible venues where parents and children's relationships are at risk.


I bring a strong work ethic to my work and I never stop until it is won.
