About me

I am committed to providing the best representation possible for my clients.  I recognize that every person who calls me has been injured - on the job, in an auto collision, or other way.  Often, serious injuries get in the way of the ability to earn a living; it is critical to get timely and accurate legal advice in those situations.


I am one of the few attorneys that understand what it means to work with your hands, to earn a living with hard, physical work.  Prior to enrolling in law school in 2001, I was employed as a commercial electrician; I have also driven a forklift, worked retail and warehousing.  I am proud of my blue-collar background.  I believe that my experience working real jobs, with real people, in all conditions, inside and out, lends me valuable insight on the working man's (and woman's) situation that most attorneys cannot provide.


I have been married since 1996, and have three sons.  Outside of work, my leisure time is centered on my family.
