I was born and raised in Lancaster, PA where I attended Franklin & Marshall College. I played outfield on the baseball team for 4 years. At 23, I moved to Florida. After a year there, I moved to Davis, CA and graduated from the King Hall School of Law in 2010.
My upbringing wasn't poor, but we were far from rich. My dad was self-employed and my mom had to work multiple jobs. I witnessed firsthand hard work, dedication, sacrifice, and financial stresses to provide opportunities to me that my parents didn't grow up with.
From my youngest days, I've always sided with the underdog. As a high school and college baseball player, I was never the prototypical size and that gave me a chip on my shoulder. I bring that chip from the playing field to the courtroom to aggressively represent my clients' rights.
Rather than get a job at a firm out of law school, I immediately opened my own office. The first lawsuit I ever filed was against one of the largest banks in the United States.
In 2013, I successfully confirmed a Chapter 11 bankruptcy for a couple that saved them over $500,000 on two separate properties. I've also successfully kept multiple homes in families after reverse mortgage companies attempted to take them back by failing to follow the contract.
Since this time, I've expanded my practice to aggressively represent those who have been injured. Fighting for individual's rights goes to the heart of who I am and what my parents instilled in me.
In my spare time I like to work out, listen to all types of music, go to the beach, and convince people I can have conversations with my cats Royce and Avatar. I occasionally tell jokes.
I spent about 7 years in the Davis/Sacramento area before relocating to San Diego in 2015 to spend time with my Grandpa before he passed.
I am also a licensed California real estate broker. DRE #01916828
