About me

I started my legal practice defending car wrecks. I moved up to industrial accidents, and currenly have an active nursing home defense practice. Over the years I have also handled numerious tpyes of employment disputes. I have tried over 25 cases to verdict, and have successfully mediated hundreds of cases.

Over the past two years, I have added immigration work to my toolbox and am interested in helping both individuals and employers with immigration questions.
