About me

I have over 30 years of experience as a trial lawyer.  I have now melded my passion with my profession by representing motorcyclists and members of the motorcycle industry.  But I am not exclusive to those 2 categories, and if I am not proficient with the area of law that you need, I have a fantastic referral network of quality attorneys.


Away from work I spend time first with my family and then my motorcycle, boat and mountain bike.
