I am a successful trial attorney with high standards for ethical conduct in the pursuit of justice. I am proud of my tradition of excellence, work and accomplishments. Since 1996 I have sought truth and accountability for my clients; ordinary folks injured through no fault of their own, yet jerked around by an insurance company.
What Drives Me
I am motivated by passion, and a desire for a more just society. I am angry that the insurance industry and corporate greed rein supreme, instead of an honest outlook geared toward helping those they promise to help. That the insurance industry reaps billions of dollars in profits, through broken promises, is beyond offensive. That the insurance industry uses its power to drive innocent victims into submission is what fuels my passion. While the insurance industry can out spend me, they cannot out will me, and my desire to protect innocent folks in times of great need and vulnerability.
Why I Am the Right Lawyer For Your Case
I carefully and selectively screen my cases so that I do not get ensnared in frivolous lawsuits. Almost all of my cases are driven by the frivolous defense of the insurance industry refusing to pay what it once promised to pay. I handle cases all over the country, and have a wide range of experience. I could not do what I do without the help of my skilled paralegal. Together, we are committed to helping our clients: good, ordinary, honest people that more often than not, never wanted a lawyer.
Often my clients do not like lawyers. Often my clients do not believe in "suing" other people, but are forced to call me when their meager request of having their medical bills paid is met with the accusation that they lied about being hurt.
I believe that all of us, me, you, our state and our country can do better today than what we did yesterday. I believe that we must learn from our mistakes. I believe that we must be accountable for our actions and that we must hold others accountable for theirs. By holding the insurance industry accountable for its choice, I believe that we will force it to operate fairly, provide the help that it promised, and stop taking advantage of people when they are down.

Tell Your Story · Protect Your Rights
Personal Injury: In state and federal courts, I have successfully handled a wide variety of harms and losses caused by all sorts of wrongdoers. From car crashes to products liability, medical malpractice to electrical shock cases, I have successfully sought out the truth and held wrongdoers accountable for their actions.
Criminal Law: Just as in personal injury cases and/or insurance disputes, I have a wide range of experience in representing people accused of crimes. Whether you are an innocent person charged with a crime you did not commit, or you broke the law and want to accept responsibility for your actions, you need a lawyer. The criminal justice system takes a cookie cutter approach to treating the accused, and it is not with an eye towards rehabilitation or even the remotest possibility that law enforcement got it wrong. If you need help, give me a call.
