About me

I have been a licensed attorney in Arizona for over 32 years.  I have worked for a large law firm, for my own law firm, and I have founded several non-law firm businesses over the years.  My broad range of experience helps me to better serve my clients with their legal needs.

My wife and I have been married for 40 years, with 6 children and 8 grandchildren.  In the 70s, I served in the U.S. Army as a Military Intelligence Officer.  I am a long-time resident of Tempe, Arizona.
