I practice “people law”, that means I represent people who need legal help. I do not represent corporations or businesses. If you call my office you will speak to me, not an associate or paralegal. I take great pride in giving my clients personal service and make myself available to talk or meet with my clients whenever they feel the need to discuss their case. My reviews speak for themselves. Call me to discuss your case. I do not charge for consultations and can visit you if needed at the hospital or local detention centers.
