About me

I am a trial lawyer.  Our goal is to provide our clients an opportunity to seek Justice and to obtain Justice for them.  I am a true student of the profession and this has led me to participate in enhancing my trial skills at the Gerry Spence Trial Lawyer College and other institutions designed to help me better tell my client's truth.


Outside of my core legal practice consisting of personal injuries from automobile, trucking, dangerous and defective products, and maritime tragedies, I have been retained by attorneys to assist in trying criminal cases and other cases nationally.
