I believe I was called into the law to help people through the hardest challenges of their lives. Serious injury or death of a loved one is something none of us can prepare for. In my practice, I carry the burden of the financial aspects of catastrophic cases so my clients can focus on healing. As a husband and father of three, I value faith and family above all else.
I practice in the areas of Personal Injury, Workers' Compensation, Medical & Pharmacy Malpractice, Disability, Product Liability, Insurance Claims, Wills and cases involving a Negligent Land Owners/Homeowners.
