About me

My 30+ plus years of government service in law enforcement and emergency medical service allows me to bring tremendous experience to a case on behalf of a client.  Military service and working for governments at city, county, state and multi-jurisdictional levels has taught me that government conduct reaches every aspect of a citizen's life in many important ways.  After years of practice and experience, I sincerely enjoy using this knowledge to protect citizens from arbitrary or misguided government activity.


When I'm not scrutinizing a bureaucrat's work, I'm probably taking a cruise on my vintage Harley-Davidson Electra-Glide.
