I pursue favorable resolutions to my clients’ legal challenges while providing each one with individualized attention. When something is important enough to require the assistance of counsel, you deserve an attorney who is:

  • Affordable — I’ve built a practice that lasts by maintaining cost-effective rates and serving as a trusted adviser over the long term.
As part of my firm’s commitment to the community, I offer a free initial consultation and take special care to meet the needs of men and women serving in one of our military branches.
