About Me

I am dedicated to obtaining the best possible results for my clients in all of my cases.  I have been a lawyer for 16 years, and I only represent injured people in personal injury, medical malpractice, product liability, employment, and insurance bad faith cases.  I love being a lawyer, and I take the time to get to understand my clients, their injuries, and the the many ways their injuries have had a lasting effect on them and their families.  Over the years I have obtained multiple seven figure results for my clients.  I encourage you to look at my website (www.kcrlegal.com) and to view my profile on LinkedIn (www.LinkedIn.com).
