About me

I believe the success I have achieved for my clients comes from my passion for family, for life, and for fairness. I know that the injuries my clients have suffered effects them and their families, causing emotional, physical, and financial pain because of the carelessness or negligence of another person, a corporation, or a governmental entity. Too often the responsible party refuses to acknowlege what my clients have suffered, and the injured party is met with an army of lawyers whose goal is to hurt them once again by refusing to compensate them. It gives me great pleasure to represent people who have been hurt at no fault of their own and to use all my legal education, talent, and experience to ensure that they receive justice.
