As an attorney for twenty years I have incorporated my personal and professional experiences into the practice of law. Personal attention is what my clients receive. When I appear at court for you we will recognize each other. I am not an attorney who stands in court announcing my client’s name because I do not know who they are. As a Lieutenant Colonel in the Air Force, as an Operations Manager at Frito-Lay and in my personal life I have learned that we all have moments which are more sensitive than others. As an attorney I take great satisfaction in helping my clients during these moments. My first client from 20 years ago is still with me. I don’t know everything, but I am the first place to call because if I can’t help you, I will find someone who will provide service at a reasonable price. My twenty years of practice have allowed me to narrow my focus of law to those identified. I have found that by focusing on what I enjoy, I can represent your needs better and can do so at a more reasonable price.
