About Me

I repesent individuals, businesses and non-profits in civil litigation matters (personal injury, property damage, insurance and business disputes) and with transactional matters (reviewing and or drafting documents).  I enjoy the practice of law and my approach is to assist clients with present needs while being mindful of the big picture, including the future.
