ABOUT ME

Integrity and respect to clients, courts and counsel are cornerstones of my firm.

"Strive not to be a success, but rather to be of value."
 - Albert Einstein

I serve businesses with litigation needs and litigation prevention needs.  If you or your business has been sued in state or federal court, I can help you.  Often, the most cost-effective way to handle potential lawsuits is to protect yourself or your business before they happen.  Anytime you or your business is entering into a new contract, be it employment, lease, insurance or other matters, I can help you.
