About me

I care about my clients and I fight extremely hard to make sure that they are fairly treated. I like to work closely with my clients and empower them to move on with their lives, confident that they were given an opportunity to be heard or to settle their cases. I settle most of my cases but I am not afraid to litigate if that is needed. I am meticulous and a perfectionist who likes to prepare very well when I run my cases. I work in a highly organized hi tech environment and I am very knowledgable on complex cases.
