About me

With over 35 years of legal experience, I am a dedicated, tenacious and creative attorney. I believe in pouring myself into everything I do and am committed to improving and maximizing my skills so that I can serve my clients to the best of my abilities.


Over the course of my career I have had the opportunity to perfect my skills inside and outside of the courtroom and truly enjoy both sides of practicing law. In my private practice I currently focus on representing injured individuals and their families in personal injury and worker’s compensation cases. I get great satisfaction from serving a diverse group of clients and regardless of the kind of case you are involved in, I promise to provide you with personalized, focused legal representation.


Outside of the office I am, first and foremost, a family man. I am a dedicated husband and father. I enjoy traveling and interacting with people who share my interests and values. I am intellectually curious, love books and am especially interested in foreign languages and the science of linguistics. In fact, I am fluent in Chinese, Japanese, French, English and Spanish.
