About me

Ivan is an intelligent and compassionate lawyer who always listens to his clients to fully assess their legal needs. He works vigorously to ensure all of his clients obtain their desired results.


Ivan was born in a small town near Buffalo, New York. When he was in second grade, Ivan's class had a career day where they were to dress for the career that they wanted and give a brief presentation about what the job entailed. Believe it or not, Ivan dressed as an attorney and spoke about how he wanted to help people that were in trouble. Ivan has not lost this desire to help people that are in any kind of trouble. Whether your problems are legal or otherwise, Ivan will listen to your concerns and do whatever he can to assist you.


Ivan attended the University of North Carolina - Wilmington, where he obtained his Bachelor's Degree in business administration. He subsequently attended law school at the Charlotte School of Law earning his Juris Doctorate degree in May of 2012. Ivan sat for and passed the North Carolina bar exam in July 2012.
