About Me

I am a board certified specialist in personal injury and wrongful death litigation. My practice is limited  to these types of cases with an emphasis on medical malpractice claims.  My partnner Bill and I formed Sandweg & Ager in 2006.  Our team consists of a full-time nurse consultant, a paralegal, two legal assistants and a physician who is "of counsel" to the firm.  My clients always have direct access to me whenever they want.  I have helped many people and have successfully tried many cases.
