About me


If you are reading these lines, you might have a problem and need to speak with an attorney who will help you and will not rip you off. 


Please do not judge me (or anybody) by my ratings and reviews.  Some very great attorneys have a rating on AVVO as "average", and some very bottom of the barrel people have a rating of "superb".  There are reasons for that,  I can tell a lot about the ratings, but do you really care?


I personally do not trust other people's ratings, not even the Wine Enthusiast's.  Please take advantage of the free consultation, pick up  the phone and decide for yourself if you need me to help you.
