About me

 My practice focuses on representing injured victims, and I have won some significant judgments for them.  Some people are surprised to learn that I started out my career doing defense work for insurance companies.  Personally, I find it much more satisfying to be helping individuals.  But I don't regret the time I spent on the other side.  It gives me -- and my clients -- an advantage, because I know exactly how the insurance companies operate.  I also find it very helpful that I was born and raised in central and southern Delaware (below the canal).  Now my wife and I are raising our daughters here.  I know this area and I know my clients.  I understand thier struggles.  People who live in Kent and Sussex counties need to know that they don't have to go to Wilmington to find a good lawyer.  They can find it right here in thier backyard, from someone who has been a life long neighbor.


Motor vehicle accidents, work place injuries, nursing home abuse, wrongful death:  cases like these require an experienced attorney to navigate the complex world of insurance to ensure fair and just compensation.  Regardless of whether your case is big or small, I won't settle for less.
