I bring to my practice a wealth of life experience from my years in the military and in the medical field. As a military medic and later as a paramedic, I was trained to handle complex and stressful situations and to think on my feet.
This training and expereince has translated into my law practice and has allowed me to provide my clients with informed and intelligent advice during what it usually one of the most stresssful moments in their life.
My time as a medic also taught me the importance of compassion and understanding. I understand that my clients are often faced with daunting circumstances and that they are usually in the middle of a life-altering situation. As such, I strive to be as accessible to my clients as possible. I do my best to maintain open lines of communication and to answer my clients questions efficiently and promptly.
Being faced with criminal charges, civil liability and/or damages or being involved in a family crisis is very stressful. The role of a good attorney is be there not only with legal advice, but with counseling that will put the client's mind at ease.
Whether I am standing next to you in front of a judge while you face criminal charges or whether we are sitting across from your ex-spouse's lawyer at a deposition table, you can be assured that you will be getting sound legal advice.
