Board Certified Personal Injury Attorney

What do you do?  

I personally work with all of my clients. It’s a philosophy I’ve followed throughout my career as a personal injury lawyer and it’s a philosophy we take very seriously at our law firm. Simply put: we believe cases are worth more when they are handled by an attorney. I make sure clients can reach me directly, and I frequently call clients directly to let them know how their cases are progressing and to obtain the information I need to maximize the value of their claims.

Why do you do it?

Prior to obtaining my Law Degree, I earned a Bachelors of Science in Occupational Safety and Health where I was trained in the standards of safety for large corporations, the role that insurance corporations play, and learned the necessity of holding negligent parties responsible for their actions to encourage safe practices.

What was your Catalyst? (How did you get started?)

I am genuinely interested in the intricacies of negotiations and trial presentation. Although people sometimes make fun of me for it, I actually read books about trial technique and strategy while I’m on vacation.

What’s a common misconception or unknown aspect of what you do?

That we don’t have to work long hours and that we get money for nothing.

What’s the most challenging part of your Hustle?

Constant conflict. All day, every day.

What’s the most valuable piece of business advice/insight that’s helped you?

Never give up. Keep fighting.
