About Me

I work as a people's lawyer and represent persons with claims against insurance companies, corporations, and government agencies. Despite the rules of court that often work to conceal an insurance company's participation, I will not appear in any case where the settlement or judgment will be paid by an individual, rather than an insurance company, corporation, or governmental agency.
