How Can I Help You Move Forward?

As an attorney, I pride myself on being able to provide practical, strategic advice to my clients. I understand all aspects of litigation both inside and outside a courtroom, whether it is a “simple” two-party dispute or complex litigation involving multiple parties and/or multiple districts. My in-depth knowledge of the legal process in state and federal courts allows me to advise clients and manage all aspects of a dispute from pre-suit advice to final resolution. Whether the case settles or goes to trial or arbitration, I zealously advocate for every client and provide timely updates and sound advice to help clients make the important decisions.
