About me

I love my job because it allows me to help people and overcome challenges. Many times, people come to me for help when one of the worst things imaginable has happened.  I take this realization very seriously and it serves as a driving force for compassionate and aggressive representation.  I help make injured people’s lives easier by taking away the insurance hassle which allows them to focus on getting better.  My purpose is to get people what they deserve and to make sure they are treated fairly. 


You can contact me with any questions, even if it’s a small one.  I encourage you to view Mission Legal Center’s client reviews on Yelp and Google.
