Personal Note

As a Workers' Compensation attorney, I enjoy that every case is different and has its own challenges. I embrace those challenges. This area of law gives me the opportunity to be aggressive and "think outside the box". I partner with the clients in determining an agreed plan of action to defend the cases to a successful resolution.

I enjoy scuba diving and traveled around the world photographing my underwater adventures. On one of my dive trips, a fellow diver said to me "with diving, you have the opportunity to swim in the largest aquarium". The ocean is truly beautiful. I went on a shark feed in Tahiti; that was an awesome experience. I have learned to embrace challenge, both professionally and in my personal life.
