"My firm represents those families injured or killed in accidents and criminal defense. I am responsible for all areas of my practice, not just legal representation management, but business management as well, including developing and implementing the firm’s advertising. I have seen business grow from less than $100,000.00 in gross revenues to over $1,000,000.00 in annual revenues.
I am the sole lawyer in my firm. When you call my office, you will speak to me, not a receptionist, legal assistant or an associate. My firm concentrates in litigating personal injury claims and wrongful death claims on behalf of those who are wrongfully injured or killed. I have obtained multi-million-dollar settlements or jury verdicts on behalf of my clients. I am committed to obtaining the best results possible for the families I represent. Let me put my 25 plus years of legal and law enforcement experience to work for you.
I also represent individuals for misdemeanor and traffic offenses as well as assist people who have driver's license issues. I take pride in helping young adults navigate the criminal justice system and minimizing or eliminating the prospect of having a permanent criminal record.
I look forward to offering these services on a regional and national level to anyone who needs my help."
