About me

When I take on a case, I treat your issue as if it’s my own. Whether it’s a business dispute,  insurance claim, or litigation matter, I strive to demonstrate personal care and attention to detail that goes unmatched by other lawyers. In an effort to provide the highest level of legal representation to all clients, I am selective about the cases I take and structure my practice to focus on quality service rather than having a large quantity of clients. Because I manage my caseload carefully, my clients receive a timely response when they contact me and other lawyers know that I am prepared to take any matter all the way through trial if necessary.

I enjoy serving as the “go-to” counsel for many businesses as well as individuals and always seek to provide representation that is both practical and efficient. You won’t see me on a television commercial or billboard. My business comes from client referrals, and that’s the way I like it.
