About Me

For over 33 years I have advised and represented the good people of the Magic Valley area in a wide range of civil matters.  Presently my priority clients are Social Security disability appeals and consumer debtor bankruptcy petitions.  I also welcome a complete range of family matters including divorce, custody, adoption, guardianship, incapacity and estate planning, and probate. I measure my effectiveness in the improvement I can bring to my clients' lives.
