About me

I firmly believe that battles in the legal arena, as well as in  life, should be wisely and selectively chosen.  I do my best to ensure that I'm giving the best advice I can, taking into account the costs of proceeding, the likelihood of success, the risks of defeat, and the realities of the mental and emotional toll that litigation can take on a person and their circle.


I am married, have two kids, and enjoy playing golf, the guitar, and poker.  More information can be found about me at
