About me

Raised on the Jersey Shore, I learned to become independent, sincere, and honest.  I began my legal career in high school, legal secretarial skills center, in 1980 and continued working as a legal assistant until graduating from Gonzaga School of Law in 1996.  My legal practice has been busy, exciting, and challenging.  I enjoy working with my clients and their families. I am always seeking to achieve the best possible resolution for each and every client.
