About Me 

I started my legal career as a child sleeping on the floors of courtrooms while my father argued cases.  This is how I spent my summers till I started working in my father and grandfather's law firm.  Law is the only thing I know how to do.  I practice in the field of my father and grandfather (social security disability) as well as criminal defense.    I have found preparation, respect, and confidence to be the keys to a favorable result in any case.  My father told me the secret to winning a case is to be "kind to everyone, know the most about your case, and be the smartest guy in the room".  This is what I strive for each and everytime I walk into a courtroom.  I have found this strategy works well.
