    • Insurance Recovery & Litigation

I am not just a trial attorney, I am a problem solver. I help medical and legal professionals protect and maintain their livelihoods when facing claims of malpractice. Whether it is in the courtroom or at the negotiating table, my approach to litigation is fearless but thoughtful. I resolve my clients’ issues so they can focus on their businesses and careers with peace of mind.


Building strong, lasting relationships with my clients is very important to me. I learn who my clients are, what their business is about, and what specific issues they face so I can successfully and efficiently develop a strategy that yields the best result for them. I foster these relationships through open and honest communication, always keeping my clients apprised of their case every step of the way, and proving that I can be both a reliable and accessible resource to my clients whenever they need me.


No matter the case, my clients trust that I have their back and will put their interests before my own.
