About Me

I am proud to be an attorney.  My office is filled with professional and caring people.  Every day I advise and represent people as if my life depended upon it. 


My clients are, with very few exceptions,  fine people who have been placed in a difficult situation or injured.  A person who has been injured by negligence or a person charged with a crime needs a loyal attorney who will advise them candidly with their best interest in mind.


Over the years, I have learned a lot about the mechanisms of accidents, injuries and illnesses. I work with my client, professional investigators, physicians and other experts to understand everything about my client's situation.


Only then can I give the highest quality advise and representation to the people who have retained me and put their trust in me as their attorney.
