About me

I founded this firm and brought to it a wide-range of both legal and professional experience. I have previously been associated with several law firms, owned my own private practice, been the general counsel for a corporation, served as a municipal judge, worked as a bank loan and servicing officer and organized and served as the president of a national bank. These experiences provide unique insights into both personal and business decisions are impacted by the law.

The practice of law is all about issues that people face in their business and personal lives and prefer to work with their attorney on a one-on-one basis. I take a hands-on approach to the practice of law, personally meeting with you, and working hard to protect your interests.
