Personalized & Effective Pursuit For The Compensation YOU Deserve! I Named as 2021 Super Lawyer I Free Consultation
I have been practicing law for more than 15 years, working side-by-side with thousands of clients and placing their needs at the forefront of everything I do as an attorney.
Long ago, I realized that my drive to serve people as their legal advisor is born out of my desire to care for injured people. Before going to law school, I worked with challenged high school students who were missing something in their lives: a relationship with a caring, compassionate, and empathetic adult. For many years, I was that adult who cared for them mentored them, and equipped them with tools to not just survive but thrive. After getting married and beginning my family, I was ready to take my experience working with high school students to the next level. I discovered a new avenue to serve people – to graciously and empathetically assist injured people, advocate for them, counsel them, guide them, and help them win. I became an attorney.
I represent people who are injured in car collisions and families who need to get back into their home after a hurricane or natural disaster because their insurance company failed them by refusing to pay their claim. I also advocate for business owners who are struggling through a business dispute. I strive to give people the personalized attention and representation they deserve by running a client-centered law firm.
What does it mean to give someone the personalized attention they deserve and to be a client-centered law firm? It means that I reliably return phone calls and emails. It means that I am available to speak with you – my client – directly, and I don’t push off clients to staff members. I compassionately listen to my clients. I take the time to ensure they truly understand everything that is going on in their legal journey. I serve clients by working along-side them to help them recover from their injuries, including a personal injury, a trauma at work, wounds from a natural disaster, or a business dispute.
For me, being client-centered means putting myself in my client’s shoes and looking at the experience of hiring a lawyer and going through a legal matter from their point of view. When doing this, I thoughtfully analyze how I can provide the best client experience.
From your first contact with me, I will intelligently and aggressively guide your legal journey, helping you choose which path to take. I think of my clients first in all things, looking at their experience from their perspective. The client is the focal point – the heart and soul – of my practice. I seek to build their trust to do more than help them resolve a discrete legal issue; I want my clients to find peace of mind, reassurance, and the advice they deserve.
I know that a cornerstone of running a client-centered law firm is to build trust with clients, making it easier to build a good working partnership and leave them satisfied and confident that they were front and center of their legal experience from the start until the finish.
