"Courtrooms are intimidating places where life-changing events occur. It is my job to effectively represent my clients in front of a jury. I believe that when your life or business is harmed by another, you need someone with the strong will and confidence to speak for you. That counsel and representation is not just in the boardroom or in a hearing, but also in front of a judge and jury where the most critical decisions are made.
Years of trying high stakes cases have perfected my strategies and approach when it comes to winning cases. I have argued cases involving the death of a child, the future of a company and the crippling of healthy contributing citizens. Consider it fearless advocacy for my clients."
