An avid learner and curious individual, I love discovering more about the world and enjoy the opportunity to do so in representing a variety of clients from diverse backgrounds.

In my work, I have been able to assist both insured individuals and insurance companies in their litigation needs. My litigated matters have varied from the defense of car accidents, products liability claims, contract disputes, property damage, easements to real property, alleged bad faith, and more.

I have found that my twin interests of language and the interaction of people, which can be seen in my two undergraduate degrees, are a great help in working toward finding resolutions to my clients’ legal issues. In the end, I believe my work is best accomplished with an active interaction with the client and a reasonable approach to the problem at hand.
