I am dedicated to helping others navigate judicial systems to reach just and fair results. I have diligently litigated cases of varying levels of complexity and scope at all stages including serving as trial counsel through jury verdicts. I bring to bear my courtroom experience and unique perspective to understand, convey, and advocate for others’ stories and truths.
