About me

 No matter how you refer to me -- Award winning Personal Injury Lawyer, Consumer Attorney, or Trial Lawyer -- most people who know or have ever worked with me will readily tell you  that I have a real passion for lawyering; and that I'm not shy about acknowledging it.


 A Plaintiff's Personal Injury Lawyer who wants to succeed in today's legal climate must be committed to steering the client's case through some very stormy seas.  My job as a Personal Injury Attorney and Trial Lawyer is akin to being David against the Goliaths in our society -- and that's an important responsibility I'm glad to have.


The public, judiciary, and my clients put their trust in me.  I'm determined to not let them down.


                          My motto:  JUSTICE.  One case at a time.
