I’ve spent over 25 years honing my craft in personal injury litigation. I was drawn to personal injury because I was fascinated by trial law. I enjoyed having the ability to change people’s lives. Medicaid and Truck Transportation companies and their insurance teams wield tremendous power over accident victims. I enjoy using my experience and expertise to provide power to people who would otherwise have no voice.
It’s a fighting spirit and tenacity I learned from my parents. As a boy working on my father’s farm, I learned the value of hard work and a determination to never give up.
WHY CHOOSE ME? I specialize in helping people hurt in a senior shuttle van accident, tractor trailer (trucking) accident or DUI caused accident. I use advanced legal theory, twenty years experience and determination to achieve justice for my clients. Justice is having a fighter in your corner; a lawyer who is responsive, treats every case as a priority and provides a superior settlement.
HOW I WORK The client’s best interests are first. Open communication and prompt return of client calls is a priority. Every client is important whether their case is big or small. I work with a small number of cases and provide personal attention. Experience and work wins cases.
