About me

I am a Christian attorney.  It is not a slogan but rather a declaration of my relationship with my Lord, and is how I conduct both my personal and professional life.

I was a paralegal for 27 years prior to becoming an attorney.  My initial training came in the US Navy ('71-'75), and after attending the Naval Justice School and graduating as a Legal Clerk and Court Reporter, I was assigned to the personal staff of an Admiral for my entire tour of duty. 

I'm a sole practitioner with no staff.  As the old adage goes, I'm the "chief cook and bottlewasher."  You will never wait for an appointment and you will never wait more than 24 hours for a return call. 

I truly hope you will never need the services of an attorney like me; however, if you do, I'd be honored to discuss how I might be able to help you.
