About me

I am a hard worker and I believe when I take a case at doing the best job possible for the client.  I treat each client as if they were part of my family.


I have been blessed to be a lawyer for over thirty (30) years and I still enjoy each and every day.  I have enjoyed meeting all the wonderful clients who have entrusted me with their business and all the wonderful lawyers who I have met in many of my cases.


Our firm is well-known because of our trial experience and our trial results.
