About me

As a member of one of the noblest of the public service professions, I care and believe that every person who needs some type of legal service, whether it be mere legal advice, drafting of a simple will or deed, or legal representation in a matter, deserves the best. With my years of experience working in government and the private sector, and in various areas of law, ranging from criminal to personal injury, family law to probate, real estate to contracts, trials to appellate representation, I bring a wealth of knowledge, training, and experience to the table. And, as I have had to work hard for what I have achieved, I know what perseverance and tolerance of less than ideal circumstances can bring to a person if they wait long enough.
