Ever since participating in a mock trial in elementary school I've wanted to be a trial attorney. Immediately after passing the bar exam on my first attempt, I opened up shop specializing in personal injury, insurance bad faith, and wage and hour class actions. Within a year I had the results to back up my passion.
Eleven months after opening I settled my first case for $257,500 against an insurance company in a bad faith action with only $21,000 in policy benefits at issue. A couple months later, and another $615,000.00 against an international product manufacturer, I knew I was on to something. We recently resolved a $250,000 medical malpractice case in favor of my client.
I am currently co-lead counsel on Moore v. Ulta Salon, Cosmetics & Fragrance, Inc. and Martinez v. Guess?, Inc., wage & hour class actions with thousands of putative class members.
In addition, I am handling numerous auto accident, insurance bad faith, slip/trip and fall accidents, and other personal injury matters in both state and federal court.
Please contact my office today to discuss any legal issue or questions you may have. I always offer free initial consultations and handle most cases on a contingency basis. I take a personal interest in each of my cases, even the small ones, and work diligently towards resolution. I hope to hear from you soon!
