About me

I have been practicing law since 1996 and have learned the value of building strong relationships with my clients.  I offer my valued clients the skill and experience of a large law firm with the personal attention that a solo practictioner can provide.  I work with my clients personally to help determine the course of action best suited to the client's particular situation and desired outcome.
