About me

As a former insurance defense lawyer I know that victims of pesonal injury will be taken advantage of by the insurance companies and their attorneys unless agressive, experienced and competent personal injury attorneys are willing to help.  I am a personal injury attorney and have received an "AV" rating which is the highest rating an attorney can receive from his peers and the judiciary.  I am known to fight all the way through trial to get my clients the compensation they deserve.   To learn more about me you can contact me through my website, or directly at 702-220-7128.
