About me

As a trial attorney I strive to deliver the best possible results for my clients at all times.  I have obtained settlements and judgments for my clients in excess of seven figures and defended matters with millions of dollars at stake.  While my practice tends to be focused  on personal injury matters, insurance defense, debt collection defense and general litigation, our office also handles criminal defense, traffic and DUI matters along with family law, real estate, estate planning and bankruptcy cases.


All initial phone consultations are free of charge.  If you have a legal question please call 630-679-0930 or visit for more information.


If you need an attorney or have a legal question, give us a call.  If we can't help you we will do our best to refer you to another attorney who we trust.
