About Me

I am a shareholder at the firm of Senn Visciano Canges & Rosenstien, P.C.  I specialize in litigation.


 


In addition to a solid family law and civil practice, I have an extensive probate litigation and estate planning practice.


 


I believe that the law is a profession which requires a serious commitment.  To be successful, you must not only know the law, you must be able to communicate the law and the facts in every case, every time.


 


I strive to provide effective representation with every client, every time.
