About Me

Thank you for taking a look at my profile.  I'm an accomplished trial lawyer who is highly skilled in many areas of litigation, including, but not limited to, complex commercial litigation and judgment enforcement.  I also have considerable experience drafting, negotiating, and reviewing contracts.  In addition to my other accomplishments, I clerked for a judge in Cook County, was Managing Attorney of the Chicago office of a national law firm, and am a member of the trial bar of the United States District Court for the Northern District of Illinois.  I enjoy half marathons and world travel.  The thing I love most, however, is spending time with my amazing wife and our precious daughter.
