Once we enter the courtroom, no one will be more prepared than I am

The practice of law is intellectually taxing, financially rewarding and brings a tremendous amount of satisfaction when you are able to help your client in time of need. To be honest, one of the things I enjoy most about my practice is outsmarting my opponents.

My hard work and willing to put in whatever time is necessary to be fully prepared to handle anything that comes my way. Once we enter the courtroom, no one will be more prepared than I am.
