Yes, we offer a 1/2 hour free consultation so that both the prospective client and the attorney can determine if they're a good fit.
Our general office hours are 9AM-5PM Monday through Friday but, like any good lawyer, I'm available when you need me, because crisis doesn't seem to have a sense of time.
It is an area of law where I feel I can best help people who need it and where my personal and legal experience provide a practical background.
The more educated people are, the better able they are to protect their rights. There is a lot of misinformation, however, and I enjoy helping people understand how to protect themselves.
I work with my clients as a team and am happy to review anything that a client prepares.
I do so often.

My experiences have led me to specialize in personal injury, medical and legal malpractice, construction law, and contract claims, and family law —areas where I can continue to bring my knowledge and experience to bear helping others.
I listen. Each client has a story to tell, and though not all of what they relate about their case may be legally relevant, it's all important to how they feel and, ultimately, to how I approach their problem. Law is not a "one size fits all" craft. While the statutes may be well-defined, each person's situation is still relative and you need to hear the whole story if you want to fully represent your client.Personal interests:

Workers’ compensation provides an exclusive remedy against employers for work-related injuries. But does that exclusivity apply to claims against the employer’s landlord when the landlord is a related entity?
