Biography

As your lawyer, I strive to establish a personal relationship with all of my clients. I understand that trust, dedication and loyalty are the foundation for building any long-standing relationships.
My loyalty and commitment to my clients stem from my experience of serving our country as a combat medic and then as a police officer. I know legal problems can cause stress, fear and frustration. And I understand the risks and challenges you face. My decade of experience as an attorney prepares me to help mitigate those concerns. You will not have to fight your legal disputes alone. I will be there to defend and protect you.
