Practicing law allows me the opportunity & privilege to help individuals who have been placed in stressful and, often times, life-altering situations against larger and wealthier opponents. My goal is to make sure they receive fair and equitable treatment under the law and/or fight on their behalf to change the existing law.


Legal cases, like life, are ever-changing. Prepare, never assume, stay humble & thirst for knowledge, excitement & new experiences.


Always prepare & never underestimate your opponent.
