  • Free Consultation
    I am happy to sit down with prospective clients in my office to find out what happened. This way I can take notes on the facts of the case and give you an idea of the different possible outcomes in the case. I find that a face to face meeting benefits the client and the attorney because it helps build mutual trust and allows us to map out what we hope to accomplish working together.
