About me

I love my job. I am a solo practitioner and I love the individualized contact I have with my clients. I like knowing that when I go into court, I really know my client's name and their story and they can feel confident that their attorney is on the same page they're on. What I lack in years as an attorney, I make up for in my determination to zealously advocate for my client by knowing the rules and following them to ensure that my client has the best chance at receiving the relief they are requesting from the court.

I am not shy about going into a court room and i am also not shy about fighting for my client's interests. Hiring me as your attorney will ensure you indivudualized contact, case specific knowledge of your case and zealous advocacy along with objectivity and a wilingness to negotiate within reason.
