About me

I concentrate in civil litigation and also provide mediation services. The client is my only concern. I am dedicated to supporting and helping our clients during their difficult times. After a consultation, I will devise the best strategy possible for the handling of your case, mindful that expenses are a concern and can be minimized if a case is handled efficiently and properly. You will receive sound legal advice and you can be assured that your case will be resolved as quickly as possible.
