Firm Overview

As a mission-oriented practice, we are driven by the results we can achieve for our clients and won't give up until justice is served. Fairness, justice, and freedom are more than words they are perspectives that drive our firm's approach.

Most of the clients I've had the pleasure of working with found my law firm as they were searching for an attorney who is driven and dedicated to helping them move past their legal struggles. With my diverse background after two decades of providing professional legal services, I am very knowledgeable about the cases and situations my clients are facing. I can then use that to think outside of the box and remain steadfast when taking on larger institutions. When confronted with the stress of a legal matter, you want to work with an attorney who not only understands legal strategy, but media and political strategy too.

When you reach out to me, we generally explore your life situation beyond the case so we can understand where the case fits into your big picture. This helps me understand how I should proceed with your case by providing a deeper understanding of what you need from me to help solve your problem.

With every case, I strive to do right by the client. When my internal resources aren't enough, I have a big network of firms that I can work with in a collaborative way to slay your giants. I'm not too proud to work with other people that will make your legal team stronger. No matter what you're facing, reach out to me and I can help you get the ball rolling.

This effort to bring accountability to our local government led him to study law and become at attorney in 1998.
