About me

I became an attorney to assist people with their legal needs.

Irrespective of whether:

You are under investigation or already charged in a criminal matter; or,

You have been injured by the actions of someone else; or,

You have determined, or been told, your marriage is coming to an end; or,

You are facing other aspects of change after your marriage has ended; or,

You are being harassed by a creditor, or someone claiming to be acting for one,

please know that you are not required to stand alone.


It is my privilege to become your advocate when you have a legal need if this is your desire.  Your needs are real, and your time is valuable. It is always my goal to properly address the former, while not wasting the latter.  Payment plans are made available in many instances based on your needs and your ability to pay for your legal services and related case expenses.
