About me

Thank you for taking the time to review my profile information.  I am currently practicing in Northwest Indiana with my office in Merrillville.  I am licensed in Indiana, Illinois and Wisconsin.  I have been in practice for over 11 years.  From 1999 to 2005, the majority of my practice focused on the defense of personal injury lawsuits.  In 2005 I started my own office where I still handle insurance defense cases, but I have expanded into handling plaintiff's personal injury, bankruptcy, divorces, corporate law, real estate, contracts, and probate. 


My philosophy for representation of clients is simple.  I provide clients with the best legal representation possible, make myself available for all client inquiries, and educate and inform my clients about the entire process to ensure that they are comfortable with every stage of the representation.


Clients can rest assured that when they hire me, they will get to speak with me directly, work with me directly, and get my full attention.  Free initial consultations are available with flexible office consultations including evening and weekend appointments.  So if you have legal problems...DON'T GO AT IT ALONE!
