About me

I take great pride in representing those that have been wronged by Big Insurance.  Insurance policyholders who worked hard and sacrificed to make their premium payments on their insurance policy and then find their claims delayed, ignored, lowballed, and/or denied when the need for the insurance policy benefits are most needed, often in the middle of a tragedy or catastrophic event.  My role is simply to hold Big Insurance true to the promises that they made in the insurance policies that they sold. Not a dollar more.  And not a dollar less.
