About me

I began my legal career representing insurance companies and carriers defending doctors and other medical providers who were accused of medical malpractice. After a few years, I turned my focus to representing victims of serious injury, including medical malpractice, and seeking justice for them and their families.  I am very passionate about helping victims in personal injury cases get back on their feet and hopes that clients look to me as not just an attorney, but as someone they can count on as a friend. One of my favorite parts of being an attorney is getting to work with people from all walks of life.

 I am a big believer in and user of technology throughout the litigation process.  I work side-by-side with my firm’s media department to develop presentations that incorporate videos, documents, and illustrations, so that key points of a case can be easily and quickly explained to judges, juries, mediators, and arbitrators.
