Building Relationships Through Service

I have been honored to represent hundreds of people who have experienced extremely difficult times and tragedies over the past 35 years, helping individuals and families who have been seriously injured or killed in accidents or through the negligence of others and organizations. My practice focuses on personal injury claims arising from medical negligence, motor vehicle accidents and nursing home abuse.

Practice Areas

Birth Injuries
Surgical Errors
Motor Vehicle Accidents
Nursing Home Abuse
Catastrophic Injuries
Wrongful Death

Courage. Conviction. Commitment. Trust.

I only take on a limited number of cases. This affords me the opportunity to give each and every client the individual care and attention they deserve to achieve maximum results.

Over the past 35 years, I have found that successfully handling legal matters for a person who has been seriously or catastrophically injured requires four qualities from both the attorney and client.


to stand up against some of the largest insurance companies in the country to fight for what’s right


to know that what we are fighting for is true and right.


to give our best.


to believe that together we can and will make a difference. When you are represented by me, you will be treated with respect and regard. You will have a voice. You will be heard.
Pursuing justice is not an easy process. In fact, it can be a difficult journey. If anyone tells you differently, then they are likely not being upfront with you. However, I strive to make the process go as smoothly as possible by communicating and keeping you well informed each step of the way.

Helping Individuals And Families Recover From Loss

I focus on individual service and building relationships with the people and families I represent. I do not desire a high-volume practice. Instead, I focus on spending my time on a limited number of cases in order for me to best help the people I have committed to helping.
