Why did you decide to become an attorney?
I saw a need for legal representation for those individuals who have experienced serious legal problems. I am committed to the jury system and representing and obtaining justice for individuals to protect their rights from corporate and government oppression.
What experiences help you to be a better attorney?
I have a high moral and ethical standard that drives me to provide high quality, effective representation to everyone no matter what their status in life. I have a natural ability to understand and get along with others. I am interested in my clients’ personal lives and how I can help them. I am proud of having helped hundreds of clients with personal issues that may have contributed to their legal problems (anger-management counseling, family counseling, drug/alcohol programs, and mental health issues).
What made you choose your primary area of law?
I chose my field of practice because I believe a free nation can exist only so long as its justice system delivers justice to all its people. I am proud to help people through what is likely to be the most serious issue of their life.
What makes your law firm unique?
My firm is unique because of my extensive experience, my personal commitment, and my compassion. I believe in customer service and that clients need to be treated with respect. Lawyering is about building relationships not just a business. I return phone calls, answer questions, and if I don't know the answer I will assist the person in finding someone who can help them. I am dedicated to fighting for the rights of people who have been wrongfully accused of a crime or suffered some wrong at the hands of an insurance company or from government oppression.
Describe your ideal client.
My ideal client is someone who takes an active role in their own case. I want to be part of a team and work with a client who is interested in reaching their goal and helping me to get there for them.
Describe your personal interests and hobbies.
I love all activities that challenge me both physically and mentally. I love back-packing, rock-climbing and other high intensity sports. I travel whenever I can and pay particular attention to my personal fitness and professional development. I am concerned about the environment and how it is being damaged by human activity.
Describe your charitable activities.
I volunteer for the National Park Service, leading guided hikes, providing visitor orientation to the park, and back-country ethics (taking care of natural resources). I have volunteered for the American Red Cross at their first aid service stations at public events. I believe in giving back to the community wherever I can.
