Fred has lived in Arizona for nearly thirty-one years, except for six years (between 2000-2006) he has been here since 1985. Fred is licensed in Arizona, California and Colorado. He has been practicing law since 2003. Prior to becoming a lawyer Fred worked for several years as an adjuster for American Family Insurance. In his early years he practiced law in California representing injured people, handled habeas corpus matters ensuring that every individual received the Constitutional protections we all deserve, and handled bankruptcy matters, helping everyday people get back on their financial feet.
Since moving back to Arizona in 2006, Fred has represented those injured due to the fault of another. Fred's knowledge and experience as a former insurance adjuster gives him an invaluable asset to his injury clients, he knows how the adjuster thinks, so he can be one step ahead of them.
