He provides clients with a clear and concise consultation to help them better understand their case and how they can leverage the law to help injured individuals seek compensation for damages.

His primary areas of concentration include personal injury law such as car accidents, workers compensation, bus accidents, truck accidents, wrongful death claims, animal attacks, slip and fall injuries, premise liability claims and more.
