About me

I am a thrill seeker who enjoys the outdoors and has accomplished the daunting task of climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro. I enjoy running, sky diving, and white water rafting. As an accomplished trial attorney I am not afraid to take on big, complex cases, and in the courtroom I am relentless and aggressive and will fight diligently, to get the best possible results, for my clients who do not have the means or ability to take on the “big guys.
