About me

I am blessed with a beautiful family and consider myself to be privileged to be able to practice law as a solo practicioner with my own private practice, drawing clients from all walks of life.  I have learned more from my clients than I ever expected simply by talking with them during the course of representation and when we have had the opportunity while waiting for court or a hearing to start.  One of the most rewarding aspects of my practice has been gaining a greater understanding of each client's particular situation and their legal goals and values.


In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my wife and son travelling, hiking, and sailing.
