About me

I am a life time resident of Southern Illinois.  I graduated from Edwardsville High School in 1988, and then attended college at the University of Illinois and law school at Southern Illinois University in Carbondale.  Since 1995, I have focused my practice on helping clients and their families that have been injured through the fault of others.
