”I am a person who likes to question everything, as the answer is always ‘No‘ if you do not ask it. I believe this is an asset to my clients, as I am always trying to find a solution to the pending issue. Sometimes the difference in a case is turning over every rock to see what it is under it.”

“I am so appreciative for the opportunity to serve my community. I know I would not be here today, but for the tremendous support from my family. In particular, I know I owe my father a great debt of gratitude for the foundation he has established in the legal community and the mentorship he has instilled in me my entire life. My appreciation for my mother’s impact on my life is equally important; as her creative, caring and artistic traits (to name a few) have helped mold me into a more complete individual.
My wife is my best friend and greatest support. At the deepest and most personal levels, she sees the work, time and stress involved with the complexities of practicing law at the highest levels. My work takes the best hours of my life and my wife’s sacrifice, understanding and patience is truly one of the greatest gifts in my life. The cases I work on are generally of the most complex and difficult in the litigation arena. I pour myself into each case and I believe it is my responsibility to fight for those who cannot fight for themselves. For me, the greatest accomplishment and feeling in this life is when you help and bring value to a fellow human in need.”
