FAMILY LAW: Passionate about family dynamics and children's issues, I have always represented clients to help them form a modified family structure, in the best interest of the children if applicable, through the divorce process. An emotional time in a client's life, the need for sound advice, excellent legal representation, a modicum of compassion and reasonable attorney cost are primary in selecting a lawyer to meet your family legal need. Concerned with family and community issues since 1985, I have served with numerous non-profit organizations serving to provide help for those in need, guidance for those in search of direction and support for those walking a new path. I strive to provide these same benefits to my clients in all areas from paternity, divorce and adoption to juvenile, probate, wills and trust. As a child advocate, when children are involved, I strive to stabilize the circumstance, minimize the trauma and resolve the case with a minimum of litigation. No one likes trials, including most lawyers.
PERSONAL INJURY,MEDICAL MALPRACTICE, PRODUCT LIABILITY: Physical injury of any kind disrupts ones life and sometimes alters it forever. Monetary damages often are your only means of recovery. Having taught medical and allied health professionals for nearly 20 years combined with research expertise in neuropharmacology, toxicology and drugs of abuse (alcohol, opiates, etc..), I offer a unique perspective of the interface of physical injury and the law. From motor-vehicle, motorcycle, and trucking accidents to medical injury by D.O.'s (osteopaths), M.D.'s (allopaths) and D.C.'s (chiropractors) to toxic exposure from illicit drugs, pesticides, heavy metals and radiation exposure, I can guide you through case development, aid in understanding the medical issues and guide you through litigation.
