Fully prepared for any twist and turn in or out of the courtroom, I stay a step ahead and anticipate issues that will arise over the course of a legal proceeding. I always remain zeroed-in on advocating for my clients and advancing their interests. With more than three decades of experience, there is very little I have not encountered. I use that knowledge and experience to benefit my clients.”
