Why did you become an attorney?

I became an attorney because is allows me the opportunity to help people from all walks of life.  My clients are good people that find themselves in very difficult circumstances at a tough time in their lives. I want to be there for them when they need help.  

What experiences (work and personal) help you to be a better attorney?

Having children of my own gives me a better understanding of the gravity and nature of family law issues faced by clients.

What makes your law firm unique?

Our small firm allows us the opportunity to give personal attention to each and every client who walks through the door.  It's our service that makes us stand apart.

Describe your personal interest and hobbies.

I am a fan of auto racing.  I also enjoy motorcycling, and traveling with my family when possible.
