I am a personal injury lawyer and my goal is to obtain fair and reasonable compensation for my clients. I started my working career by working in the insurance industry progressing from a claim adjuster to a claim supervisor and finally as an attorney in house counsel. All of my education, undergraduate and law degrees were obtained going to night school at DePaul University. After going into private practice I primarily did insurance defense work, defending all types of personal injury claims including the defense of doctors in medical malpractice cases. In my career I have tried over 100 jury cases to verdict.
For the past 10 years my practice has concentrated on plaintiff personal injury. In addition I have served as an arbitrator for the Circuit Court of Kane County as well as an arbitrator for uninsured and underinsured motorist cases. I also serve as a mediator for the Kane County Mortgage Foreclosure Program. I believe my background provides a unique perspective to resolve those claims that I have been entrusted.
My most fervent hobby is riding my Rocky Mountain horse Gunner.
