Claimed Lawyer ProfileSocial Media


After working in sales to put myself through undergrad and law school, negotiating the best outcome for my clients is second nature. Personal injury lawsuits generally boil down to settlement negotiations on the front end and reducing provider bills on the back end. After a settlement figure is reached, many lawyers incorrectly believe their job is over, handing providers with outstanding bills more money than necessary. Because I pride myself on a client-first business model, I work the extra hours to ensure clients retain as much of their settlement or award as possible. In most cases this amounts to thousands of dollars.

I love meeting potential new clients in their homes, getting to know their families, and keeping in touch after their cases are over. Clients have my personal cell phone and I encourage them to text or call whenever they need to talk. All lawyers know the law. I believe the relationships I build with my clients is what sets me apart.

Need To Know More?

I landed in Chicago in 2010 after having lived in Ohio, Texas, and Virginia. In 2015 I met my wife Rebecca, a Chicago native and social worker with the CPS. After 15 wonderful years with my last dog, my wife and I look forward to welcoming a new puppy into our lives. Though I love to be outdoors hiking, sitting on a beach, or playing sports; my guilty pleasure: reality television. I am actively engaged in community outreach and I aspire to be a public servant in the future.
