I’d like to tell you a story about why I help people who have claims against insurance companies. Its 1991 and I’m a law student living out-of-state when my mom calls to tell me she’s been burglarized. She is scared and upset. Fortunately nothing sentimental is stolen. I naively tell mom that her homeowners insurance will compensate her for the things that were taken. It turns out that ... view profile

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.

If I was seriously injured or a family member had died as a result of someone's negligence, I would want fair compensation without a jury trial, if possible.

A personal injury lawyer works with clients who have suffered a physical or emotional injury, usually by accident or mistake. For example, if you are in a car accident or are the victim of a botched surgery, a personal injury attorney can help. They know how the insurance claim process works, they know what evidence to gather, and they know how to calculate and present a claim for damages. Many personal injury attorneys take cases on a contingency basis, which means they receive an agreed-upon percentage of the payment you receive, also called the personal injury settlement. If you don't recover any money, they don't get paid their fee. Personal injury lawyers also know how to defend you if someone thinks an injury is your fault.
