About Me

I am an avid fisherman and love nothing more than an intense battle.  I enjoy every part of the fishing experience, planning the trip and executing the plan.  Of course nothing is better than being in all out struggle to win.  I savor each and every trip and become better through learning more every time I am on the water.


I approach the law in the same way.  I will take my experience, knowledge and training and put it on the line to win for you.
