About Me

The interests of the client come first.


We make less rain than some of the so called "rain makers" but we pride ourselves that your case is being worked on by the person you hired, not passed along to someone else.


We handle cases that have a relatively small value to a very large value.  Whether the case is a business dispute, contract issue, malicious prosecution, sexual assault or accident case, each case is important to the client the hires the firm. We give each case individual handling and attention.


One does not have to go to a big firm to receive the attention they deserve. We provide big firm results and small firm attention.
