Leading our client’s cause in difficult times and standing up for their rights is what drives me as an attorney. Our client comes to us in a time of great need, after suffering a great injury or loss of a loved one. We often face insurance companies and large corporations with nearly unlimited financial and legal resources. I owe it to my clients to even those odds; I bring all of my knowledge and experience to fight for them.
