I am an experienced litigator and trial lawyer serving clients that range from major insurance companies and businesses to individuals and associations. I handle a variety of business, insurance, premises, personal injury, contract, criminal, domestic and equine-related matters. While I enjoy being in the courtroom, I understand the costly implications of litigation. Therefore, I strive to advise clients regarding alternatives to the litigation process such as mediation, arbitration, and other alternative dispute resolution avenues.
