BIOGRAPHY
Empathy and compassion are the cornerstones of my philosophy in the practice of law. Justice demands truth in thought, truth in speech, and truth in action. Anything less is unworthy.

My ability to inspire justice and shine a light on untruths sets me apart. In a world bewildered by untruth, I expose those who run from responsibility, and effectuate change through accountability.
