Biography

I am a trial lawyer with more than 30 years of litigation experience. I represent individuals in matters involving personal injury litigation, estate planning and administration, real estate sales and development, domestic issues, and business litigation. During my professional career, I have had the opportunity to litigate in multiple state and federal courts, and have handled matters ranging from those merely about money and property, to those involving more vital issues such as civil rights, personal liberty, child welfare, and eldercare. At times, I have been disappointed with our admittedly flawed and cumbersome legal system, but more often I am encouraged by how individuals working within that system consistently rise to the occasion.
