About me

I am first and foremost a trial lawyer and enjoy what I do every day for my clients. For the first three years of my career, I was a corporate counsel for one the world's largest corporation but that's not where I wanted to be or what I wanted to do. I enjoy going to court and presenting my client's case to the judge or jury. Every day presents a new challenge, an opportunity to learn and grow. This is what I envisioned being a lawyer to be all about.

So if you are looking for a lawyer who will be there through thick and thin, treat you with respect and dignity, and make every effort to know you as a person, you have found your attorney. Give me a call and I will be happy to discuss your needs and determine if we have a fit or if you are better served with a referral.

I handle all family law matters including divorces, custody and child support modifications, CPS cases, and adoptions. I also handle all injury cases including accidents, premises liability, plant and refinery accidents, brain injuries, loss of limb, burn injuries, offshore accidents, 18 wheeler accidents, and defective products.
