About me

I prefer to represent seriously injured people, where there is adequate insurance coverage on the part of the at-fault party or the injured party to secure a meaningful recovery for the injured person I represent. We are very client-centered in our representation and work to get our clients back on their feet and on with their lives. Please visit my website at
