About me

I am a problem solver.  I look for strategic ways to solve complicated problems.  And when a lawsuit is necessary, I attack it head on and prepare the case for trial.  


There are few things more satisfying than taking on and beating larger opponents, or getting clients the funds they need for a life-saving procedure, or saving someone's home, or forcing an insurance company to live up to the promises it made when it sold a policy to someone in need.


I still believe in the basic goodness of people and that, given a chance, humanity prevails.
