Personal Note

In my career, I’ve discovered that the pursuit of the "truth" in every situation is key to successfully defending any workers' compensation claim. Once you are aware of the specific factors that are driving your claim you can best situate yourself to design a successful defense.

One of my passions is photography. I love to capture the beauty that surrounds us everyday. I find beauty in almost everything, even scenes that may not at first glance seem appealing. I like to believe that I am able to use this in life as well, which helps me find unique and unusual solutions to problems that are presented to us every day.
