After serving as a United States Army Officer from 1972 to 1976, I entered law school at Mizzou, graduating in 1979.
Since then, I've been practicing civil litigation law in the Kansas City area, although my cases have taken me around the country and beyond.
My motto is simple - work hard, do good, and keep smiling!
