About me

Close to twenty years ago I lost a good friend and two close family members in a tragic car accident caused by the negligence of others.  My brother was the lone survivor but suffered extensive injuries.  I personally witnessed the hardship this caused my family and the other families involved.  For the past 15 years I have been fortunate and privileged to represent others, like my friend and family members, who have been injured or even killed, through no fault of their own.  Nothing makes me happier than to make a difference in their lives, and the lives of their family members by aggressively pursuing the compensation that they rightly deserve. I represent people.
