About me

I grew up in the Big Apple that is New York City but Tennessee is the place I call home.  Very little can compare to the excitement and diversity that exists there.  Yet, I have come to find much of that excitement through my practice as an attorney; and a refreshing diversity in the people I have encountered throughout my career.  Advocating for my clients and fighting for what I truly believe in is a tremendous reward in itself.  However, nothing compares to the realization that I have made a life altering difference in someone's life.  I am extremely dedicated and determined to do all that I can possibly do for my clients.  I do not back down easily and I will remain at your side until the battle is done.  My clients will always have a fighter, a protecter, and a champion in me.
