About me

My goal is a quick and successful resolution for our clients.  My reputation is to fight for every penny that my client deserves.  Although I desire to settle for my client's best interests, the insurance companies and their counsel know that I will take them to trial if they don't settle.  And, I have achieved multi-million dollars in verdicts against those insurance companies that want to challenge me.


I focus on injury claims whether the client is injured in a wreck, while performing maritime work, or while performing other kinds of work.
