I have been in practice for over eight years and have personally recovered millions of dollars for my clients throughout my career. I went into personal injury law because it was an opportunity to help people at their worst and help guide them through some of their most difficult times.

I find liability when other attorneys cannot. Many of my clients’ cases have been turned down or rejected by other lawyers with too narrow an approach. I take pride in researching, and investigating, to discover what other lawyers oftentimes miss.

My Philosophy

Be accountable, and take responsibility for your actions.

When a company or insurance company does something wrong, it is up to you to hold them accountable.

There are two aspects to every case: compensation and community.

The purpose of compensation is to restore the plaintiff to their condition before the injuries. Since we cannot travel back in time, we have to use money to try and make them whole again.

The community relates to how a case makes the community safer because wrongdoers are held accountable.

Therefore, each case is an opportunity to prevent this from happening to our community, our families, and ourselves.
