About Me

Though I grew up in the small town of Tonopah, Nevada, it is my pleasure to say that Kansas City has been my home for the past twenty-five years.  


After receiving my law degree from the University of Missouri Kansas City, it was my privilege to serve as a judicial law clerk at the Missouri Court of Appeals, for Judge Ronald Holliger.  Working for the Court provided me with valuable experience and solidified my broad understanding of the law and of the importance of legal procedure in the development of a case. 


My goal is to provide the best legal recourse under the law to those individuals who have been injured or treated unfairly by others.  Advocating on behalf of the injuried is an honor, and I am passionate about it.  I want to ensure that individuals who have been deprived of their life, well-being, or livelihood, due to another's intentional or negligent actions, receive fair and just compensation.  I do this out of a strong belief in the principles of equity and fairness, and a deep sense of satisfaction knowing my work has benefitted my clients in a meaningful way.
