About me

I help injured people who need an advocate. I strive to help my clients recover physically as quickly as possible, while protecting their legal rights and keeping them from being taken advantage of by insurance companies.


Please visit to see the full range of cases I handle, including: motor vehicle collisions; PIP and UIM insurance disputes; medical malpractice; wrongful death; product liability; and other areas of personal injury.


I work to maximize my clients' financial recovery. Helping my clients obtain fair and just compensation for their pain, injuries, medical bills, property damage, lost wages, aggravation, future bills, and countless other harms is a difficult process, but very rewarding.


If you want an experienced personal injury attorney who will work hard for you and personally handle every aspect of your case, rather than farm the work out to a secretary or paralegal, then please call me. I look forward to speaking with you.


Since 1994, I have limited my law practice to representing injured clients exclusively. Over the years, I have handled and settled hundreds of personal injury cases.


Whether your claim is large or small, I will always strive to serve you with the personal attention and expertise your case deserves. I welcome the opportunity to help you. Call me for your free consultation right now.
