Biography

I have a unique blend of practical business experience in addition to a legal background. Prior to earning a law degree in 1993, I had over 25 years experience in the securities, insurance and banking industries including being Senior Vice President of one of the nation's largest financial institutions in the 1980's. This prior business experience gives me not only a legal perspective but also a practical business perspective in seeking solutions to clients' legal problems.
