About Me

     My goal is to help hard-working people who are injured to be adquately compensated for those injuries so that they can keep doing what they do best to make the world a better place for us all. For example, I help small business owners pursue claims against producers of key inputs that have colluded to artificially stabilize or raise the inputs' prices. I also help employees restore their hard-earned retirement savings when their loss has been caused by their employers' failure to act prudently and in the best interests of retirement plan participants in relation to retirement plan assets. I also broadly help home loan borrowers by pursuing mortgate backed securities claims against residential appraisers and underwritters that fail to competently and honestly perform their duties.


     My practice is national in scope and emphasizes representation of clients in federal district courts.


     I am honored to serve on the Vioxx Consumer Purchase Claims Subcommittee of the Plaintiffs' Steering Committee in In re: Vioxx Prods. Liab. Litig. MDL No. 1657 (E.D. La.) and the WSAJ Consumer Protection Section Deskbook Editorial Board.


     In addition to practicing law, I enjoy  gardening, cooking, dancing, sailing, running, stand up paddleboarding, playing soccer, practicing yoga,  listening to the Blues, and traveling.
