About me

I was born in Chicago, Illinois, but was raised in a small town in central Missouri. My rural upbringing taught me about hard work and honesty. I attended the University of Missouri as an undergraduate and later attended Washington University School of Law in St. Louis, Missouri. After graduation I began my career working with other lawyers who represented an array of injured workers. I found that their way of doing business sometimes benefited the lawyer more than the client. I then separated myself from the rest to form my own practice – a practice modeled after the lawyers of a generation ago, one that is fair, honest, and dedicated to obtaining the best possible results for my clients.


Many of our clients speak only Spanish, so I learned the language to better communicate with my clientele and so our Spanish speaking clients would feel comfortable in our office.
