Attorney Profile

My practice is focused on helping those that have been seriously injured as a result of someone else's negligence.  The process of presenting an injury claim as well as the litigation of a disputed matter are both very complicated and confusing processes for most injury victims.  I take pride in knowing that I can make that process easier and more understandable for my clients and in the fact that I am results oriented in my practice.  I enjoy fighting for the rights of the injury victim and am both honored and privileged to help them in such a difficult time.
