About me

I have dedicated my life to representing individuals in their pursuit of justice. I believe in this country and our legal system. Over the years I have been blessed  in many ways.  I grew up poor and put myself through college and law school. During my legal career I have had the opportunity to serve thousands of clients in their pursuit of justice. Everyone who knows me knows that  I thoroughly enjoy what I do. I work hard for my clients and will do all I can to see that the parties  who harm them are held accountable for their wrongdoing.
