In My Own Words
"I feel honored to represent hard-working men and women and their families. I also come from “working” family roots. All too often, I see a client who has a serious injury, one that takes that worker out of the labor force. Injured workers need good representation so that they have access to what the law allows: damages for lost income, pain and suffering, retraining costs, and all other damages. I feel that a good result is when financial security is established for the injured client and his family. That goal and my great clients gets me out of bed every morning."
