Personal Philosophy  

Blue-Collar Attorney

I listen to my clients, understand their issues, provide practical legal advice, and secure the best possible outcome.

I see myself as a simple man to whom clients can relate and I have a practical approach that people can relate to and my clients know and feel they have an advocate in their corner.

I grew up in the area and learned about people by working in the family business started by my grandmother. For 9 years I was a lifeguard - today I am still a lifeguard, watching over the lives of my clients.
