My law license declares I am an attorney and counselor at law, and I take my role as a counselor very seriously. I work tirelessly to ensure my clients have all the facts and law to make the best decision for themselves or their business. If a client’s path leads us to a courtroom, I ensure the judge and jury have the relevant facts and law necessary to make the correct decision.
These have been my guiding principles since I first began practicing law. In my first year of practice, I was appointed by a judge to represent a client who was charged with a Class “C” felony. The client was an older gentleman who faced the prospect of spending the remainder of his life in prison. The evidence against him was significant, but he refused to go down without a fight. I was appointed to the case with the understanding it was a lost cause, but would be good experience for me. At trial, I highlighted the shaky credibility of the State’s witnesses, and the jury returned a verdict of “not guilty.”
I have continued to put these principles into practice throughout my career. I handle matters ranging from contract and real-estate disputes to defamation and products liability claims. Whether for individuals, small businesses or large corporations, I guide my clients through the litigation process with full knowledge of the risks involved and an eye towards the most comprehensive resolution.
