About me

I have spent a majority of my legal career in the courtroom as a litigator. Before becoming partner at Hall, Rustom & Fritz, I was fortunate enough to work as an associate for various attorneys in all fields of law which allowed my the opportunity and exposure to litigate all forms of cases: from contract disputes, divorce & child custody, business disputes, criminal law, and real estate litigation.  This experience not only gave my exposure to various areas of the law but also helped establish myself as a known face in front of the judges here in Central Illinois. 


I have now taken this vast array of experience and utilized it in my own practice as a partner at Hall, Rustom & Fritz.
