About Me

During the course of litigation, clients deserve a lot of attention.  They need help, they need money, they need to know what is going on with the case, they need assurance that they will get their day in court quickly, they need justice, they need to know the strength and the weakness of the case , they need to hear a warm, kind, and at the same time, strong voice speaking on their behalf, and they need to know their lawyer is an experienced fighter with a proven track record.  I have personally witnessed how in "large" firms, a client is yet another "case" and how their lawyers rarely return the client's call or inform the client of the status of the cases, and how cases take forever to resolve.  This is not how I run my office.  I am devoted to my clients.  I enjoy being a lawyer.  I develop a special human bond with my clients.  I try to become the voice of hope during a difficult period.  And, I am committed to recover the maximum amount of money possible to compensate my clients and their families for their injuries and losses.
