About me

Ever since I was a kid I always rooted for the underdog. Just because one side has the power, money and influence doesn’t mean they get their way. The law is supposed to treat all people equally, however, it often doesn’t unless you have a strong advocate on your side. I represent regular people in cases against insurance companies, employers and the government. These are three entities with nearly unlimited resources, power and influence. Injured workers often do not know how to navigate a complex insurance bureaucracy that is designed to limit care and costs so that the insurance companies can a make a profit. Employees who are not being paid correctly, who are denied rest breaks, overtime and double-time often feel powerless when their employer ignores the law. Persons charged with a crime--be it a relatively minor misdemeanor or a serious felony face the full power of a government that is trying to take away their liberty. People in these scenarios should never go it alone. I fight for regular people who find themselves in difficult if not impossible situations. I have devoted my career to helping the little guy succeed. At my office I tailor a legal strategy for each individual client--there is no one size fits all approach. I fight tirelessly so that my clients receive every benefit, protection and defense available under the law. Let ME work for YOU.
