I have been practicing law since 2003 and have tried more than 40 jury trials and numerous non-jury trials throughout my career. Currently, 100% of my practice is dedicated to seeking justice for those injured by the negligence of others.
Background: After graduating from Heidelberg University where I was a four-year member of the wrestling team, I attended the University of Miami School of Law. After graduating from law school, I began my legal career as a prosecutor in Florida, where I tried case after case before Florida juries. This prosecutorial experience honed my skills as a litigator and kindled within me a true passion for the courtroom.
Driven by service, I joined the Unites States Army Reserve in 2004 as a member of the Army JAG Corps and I continue to serve as an Army reservist today. My military service has included nearly eight years of active duty military law practice, including a deployment to Iraq in 2010, where my primary missions were to partner with Iraq Army lawyers as part of the U.S. effort to help develop and grow the Iraq judicial system, as well as to investigate and pay claims made by Iraq nationals for alleged damages caused by coalition troops. From helping to deliver computers, printers, and copiers to a civilian courthouse in downtown Baghdad, to traveling to numerous Iraqi Army bases for meetings, to making cash payments to locals whose claims for damages had been verified, my overseas experiences helped to solidify an appreciation for our U.S. system of justice. I currently hold the military rank of Major and I'm a graduate of the U.S. Army’s Airborne and Air Assault schools, among others.
From 2007 – 2012, and in between military mobilizations, I practiced law at John Madden, P.A. in Stuart, FL, where I was able to earn a number of excellent results for our civil litigation, criminal defense, and family law clients. My Army service eventually led to a consecutive six-year active duty period of service from 2012 – 2018, during which I served at Fort Knox, KY; Charlottesville, VA, where I earned a Master of Law degree in military law; and, finally, at the 451st Expeditionary Sustainment Command here in Wichita, KS, where my family and I chose to remain after leaving active duty.
I am licensed to practice law in Kansas state and federal courts, as well as in Florida and Texas, and I am a member of the Wichita Bar Association and the Kansas Trial Lawyers Association.
It is my commitment to work tirelessly on behalf of my clients. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my wife and kids, staying in shape, and training in martial arts.
