About me

In my twenty-six years of practicing law, I have always tried to give my clients superior representation at a fair price. I can not guarantee results, but I can guarantee that I will fight for you to the best of my ability. If necessary, I will get down in the foxhole with you. Whether you are fighting the government in a criminal case or a large corporation or insurance company in a civil case, I will do my best to see that you prevail.
