An Attorney Who Understands Both Sides Of The Issue

Before I started practicing law, I worked in finance for big corporations. I understand how they evaluate legal claims from a dollars and cents perspective. I know that they will do everything they can to make things as difficult as possible for you when you bring a claim against them.

My responsibility, as your lawyer, is to put you in a position to have a fair fight. I am not afraid of companies and their vast resources, because I am motivated to hold them accountable for their wrongdoing. As a litigator, I am well-suited to take your case to trial if it is the only way these companies take your claim seriously. I am not going to be intimidated or back down when things seem impossible. I will work every avenue of your case zealously to put you in the best possible position for success.
