Trial Attorney

I initially wanted to become a district attorney. When I graduated from law school I was working for a large personal injury law firm focusing on personal injury and product liability matters. I realized that achieving justice for those who were injured because of negligence was far more rewarding that I imagined it could be. I realized that this was my true calling. I can never make a person truly whole once they have been injured by someone else. However, at the end of the day, I can make an insurance company, business or individual accountable for hurting someone. When this happens, my clients’ lives change for the better. Their future is more certain than it was before. This is truly achieving justice.
