Claimed Lawyer ProfileQ&ALII GoldSocial MediaResponsive Law

Our firm is rooted in Montgomery County with two offices to better serve the area. I handle many cases in the surrounding counties (Macoupin, Bond, Fayette, Christian, and Shelby County) as well. We have experience handling many areas of law, including personal injury (car wrecks/dog bites/slip or trip & falls/wrongful deaths/malpractice), traffic/DUI/criminal defense cases, bankruptcy, family law (custody/child support/adoption/divorce), estate planning (wills/POAs/trusts), and estate administration (non-probate and probate), and general civil practice.

I grew up Nokomis (Montgomery County), where my parents still reside. My degrees are from Southern Illinois University Edwardsville and Thomas M. Cooley Law School. While in law school, I concentrated on litigation and advocacy for justice in the courtroom. I have put that concentration to use representing clients in the courtroom in hearings, trials, and other matters.

On a personal level, I am married and have three children. My wife and I are part of the Metro East Community Rotary Club. As a family, we enjoy volunteering and serving those that need help in and around their community.
