About Me

My law career began with a sincere desire to help people which continues to this day. The fact is that many really good people get caught up in the legal system and rapidly become lost.  An experienced Attorney can help an individual quickly get their life back to normal.


Many people make the mistake of believing the legal system will look out for their best interest. Unfortunately that is not always the case.  There is only one person in the courtroom that is there to represent you –  and that is your lawyer. It is up to you to find someone who will aggressively stand up for your rights and make the system see you as a person, and not a number.



I discovered the key to a successful practice is to understand that each individual is unique. It’s crucial to take the time to understand the circumstances of their particular situation. If you find yourself in need of an experienced attorney, either for yourself or a loved one, please call my office. I have helped hundreds of people successfully get their lives back on track and look forward to helping you.
