About me

Hello all!


I want you to know that I love what I do.




I tell large corporations to go jump in a lake.


Every day.


Every single day, I tell large corporations with more money then I will ever see for the rest of my days that they have no power and can't hurt my client.


Its really great.  I actually see my clients' lives improve.  You don't always get to see the fruit of your efforts as an attorney.


This is why i give lots of free advice, I spend time on the phone and why I help people regularly even though I won't get paid.


Give me a call and ask me some questions or look for my responses here on AVVO or at my websites:
