I have been in practice for over fourteen years and have learned that hard work for my clients always pays off. Family law, personal injury and medical malpractice are difficult areas of the law that create even more difficult situations for my clients. Going through a divorce, being the victim of an injury or malpractice or fighting for custody of children are tough for clients. I want my clients to know that I take their case seriously and will work as hard as possible to get them a positive result.
