About me

I represent people in personal injury and class action matters.  I think it's critically important that people have strong representation when they are hurt or defrauded, particularly in going up against large insurance companies and corporations.  My firm is dedicated to effectively and aggressively representing people and we bring the resources, commitment, and a track record of success based on being prepared to go to trial and going to trial if cases do not settle.
