About Me

I am passionate about helping clients achieve their goals.


I have over 20 years of experience in law and business. My practice focuses on two areas: (1) helping injured people seek justice, and (2) business/real estate transactions. I have personal experience in both areas -- my first plaintiffs' personal injury case was my own, and I've owned several businesses.  Having a broad range of experiences and skills helps me better understand client needs, as well as to find and obtain creative, common sense, pragmatic and successful solutions to client problems.


I see myself as a holistic lawyer. What I mean is that your legal situation is usually only one part of the puzzle, and there can be other things you have to consider. When looking for the best outcome, you can’t pretend the other pieces of the puzzle don’t exist.


In my "free time", I enjoy yoga, meditation, bicycling, tennis, scuba diving, travel and playing the piano.
