About me

Sometimes the law can be confusing and intimidating. You may not know where to begin, and you might be afraid to ask silly questions.   When you need an attorney, you should look for more than an attorney who merely knows the law; you should look for an attorney that can teach you the law with a personal touch.  I make the law accessible and understandable to everyone. I actually take the time to listen to what you have to say and to answer any of your questions.  By making the law clear and understandable, I will empower you to make your own decisions about your legal rights and about your future.

Being a teacher makes me a better lawyer. Before becoming an attorney, I taught high school science for 10 years.   Just as people are often intimidated by the complexities of the law, high school students are often intimidated by the challenges of chemistry and physics. As a teacher, I always strove to make those difficult subjects more understandable to my students. As a lawyer, I will teach you the law and make it clear to you.
