Representative Clients

  • In my personal injury practice, I have represented numerous individuals assisting them in obtaining damages for the injuries they sustained, the pain and suffering they incurred and any lost wages, medical bills and other miscellaneous damages they incurred as a result of an automobile accident. In my domestic relations practice, I have represented a wide variety of clients of all genders and from a variety of socio-economic backgrounds.  Given my college degree in finance and my Certification as a Financial Litigator, I have represented high net worth individuals, executives with complex compensation packages and many business owners.  With my training in Collaborative Law and Mediation, I encourage four-way conferences of both parties and their respective counsel to create an environment where parties feel free to communicate their needs and desires and to be heard so that a negotiated resolution of their domestic issues can potentially be achieved.  In my estate planning practice, I represent individuals seeking estate administration as well as those seeking estate planning including wills, powers of attorney, homesteads, health care proxies and potentially those seeking trusts., 2020
