Biography

For as long as I can remember, I have wanted to be a lawyer. My job gives me the chance to learn something different every single day, be it new medical terminology for a medical malpractice, wrongful death or personal injury case or a new discovery method that I can utilize in my daily practice. 

I also really enjoy meeting and working with new clients. When a person’s life intersects with that of an attorney, it’s usually not pleasant. It is usually due to some traumatic event that is occurring in that person’s life—a divorce, an unexpected death, and etc. I have clients whose daughter, with a big, bright, beautiful future just died days earlier, mothers who have just buried their sons, wives who have just been left with nothing and had no idea there was anything wrong in their marriage. These people come and put their faith and trust in this firm to represent their family’s interest and that is a remarkable task to be given, one that I don’t take lightly. I admire these clients’ courage, strength, and determination.
