In addition to being a defender of the constitutional and legal rights of citizens in society, and my clients in court, I'm a passionate 2nd Amendment rights advocate. If you want dedicated sincere personal service in representing you in your legal problems, you have a partner in me.
Friends know I am addicted to muscle cars and sport bikes, a political junkie/activist, an ardent competitive shooter, an avid hunter and conservationist, a family man and outspoken in faith issues.
I was for many years a Boy Scout Adult Leader with my two son'; wilderness activity oriented troop.
