About me

I have participated in 30+ trials as civil defense counsel.
I have significant first chair trial experience, and I have obtained multiple
defense verdicts. My litigation experience has been in the areas of medical
malpractice litigation, nursing home negligence litigation, business
transactions, and personal injury.

I provide a broad spectrum of legal services including business law, criminal
defense, domestic relations, wills, trusts, estate planning, landlord-tenant,
and medical peer review defense.

I also have a deed preparation service. My team of deed preparers have over 50
years of combined experience. I have served a diverse collection of title
companies, and I am constantly looking for ways to better serve them. My office
typically turns deed requests around in 24 hours and can deliver the documents
in Word, PDF and hardcopy. Requests can be received by facsimile or email, and
I am currently developing a web based program that will increase efficiency and
customer satisfaction.
