I have been practicing Workers' Comp law since first becoming an attorney in 1988. My first position was as an Attorney at the Industrial Commission of Arizona.
I did defense work for a short time and have been representing claimants since 1990.
I helped build the biggest claimant's firm in Arizona, leaving in April of 2013 to merge my practice as a Partner at Snow, Carpio & Weekley.
I have devoted my career to helping injured workers and their families put their lives back together after life altering injuries. I do not represent fakers, malingerers or people trying to " game" the system. I do represent individuals who are being taken advantage of by insurance companies and third party administrators.
I am a strong advocate for my clients and very competently handle cases from outset through complex hearings and appeals. I am very fortunate to have a passion for my law practice and the thousands of injured workers I have represented.
