About me

I have years of experience in advoctating for, defending, and representing  clients in matters involving criminal charges, traffic offenses, personal injuries, wrongful death, divorce, custody, and similar matters.  


I am committed to providing solutions tailored to your unique set of circumstances. My focus is on treating customers as clients, not simply another case number.  The primary belief and goal of my firm is to provide top-notch personalized service to each and every client.


I pride myself on standing out from the competitors through a high level of pesonal attention I give to my clients.  It is my commitment that no client will ever be lost in the shuffle, which unfortunately often happens with other firms who try to squeeze as many people through the door as possible.  In other words, I am motivated not by opportunism and greed, but because it is my passion to speak on behalf of the injured and aggrieved.
