About me

I represent people who have experienced physical, psychological and financial injuries due to the carelessness or criminal acts of others.  I estimate that I have represented nearly one thousand people in these types of matters.  I am proud that my clients place their health, livelihood and families in my care.  It is an awesome responsibility and I appreciate their confidence.  I have limited my practice to this area since 1989.  We practice in the small town of Arlington.  However, we deliver exceptional legal service and always ensure that our clients are exceptionally well represented.  We only accept legitimate injury claims and always thoroughly review our cases to ensure the truthfulness of the claim.
