He is a trial lawyer who has tried and won cases at trial, both as a defense attorney and a plaintiff’s attorney.

He brings the right balance of knowledge, people-skills and integrity necessary to settle the most complex of issues, regardless of the size or type of case. He will work hard to move past any hurdles or obstacles that may arise during mediation.
