"If there's one thing clients should know about me, it's that I'm not afraid of a challenge."

The best attorneys

NEVER STOP LEARNING.

Since the law is an ever-changing entity, it's important that you work with an attorney who makes a point of staying up to date. In addition to performing independent research, I am dedicated to taking continuing legal education (CLE) seminars. This keeps me well-informed of current local laws, as well as best practices regarding your case.

NOTABLE CASES

Clients often seek my counsel for one matter but end up solving many.

TRUCK ACCIDENT

A self-employed individual was injured, suffered damages to his vehicle, and lost income after he was sideswiped by a semi-truck that belonged to a major national transportation company.

Client compensated for medical bills, auto repairs, lost income, and pain and suffering.

SEEING THE BIG PICTURE ALLOWS ME TO BETTER UNDERSTAND THE DETAILS OF YOUR CASE

Though my practice is diverse, the common thread is dispute resolution. While mediation and arbitration are sometimes used to reach an agreement between two opposing parties, litigation is the most common method. I have extensive experience in the courtroom and have successfully completed many trials, arbitrations and settlement conferences. 

What people sometimes fail to realize is that the skills of a strong litigator are the same no matter the type of case. In fact, having a varied background can even prove to be an asset. After all, if you become too focused on a single area, your ability to problem solve creatively can be stifled. Furthermore, you may fail to see all of the consequences of the case at hand. 

Let me give you an example. Say a couple comes to me seeking a divorce. Rather than simply addressing the immediate situation at hand, I will look into their circumstances as a whole. If I discover that the couple owns a business, for instance, I will explain the different ways in which they can successfully divide their business, as well as the effects each decision might have on their taxes and child support payments.

Scenarios like the one above are more common than not. Clients often see speaking with an attorney as the first step toward resolving a particular issue, but I help them look into the future and prevent their present actions from leading to further obstacles down the line.
