About Me

I have been involved representing health professionals for 44 years and over 2000 cases. I am Board certified in Administrative Law. For diversion, I ride cutting horses and raise cattle and enjoy my grandchildren. We sponsor two grade school age children in Uganda through the African Children's Choir and I have traveled to Mexico, Appalachia, Honduras, and Uganda in  mission work. I have been blessed in many ways, but one has been to represent practitioners of th healing arts and assist them with their struggles.
