As an attorney, I have practiced personal injury law since 1999. But I’ve handled these cases since 1995, when I first started work as a paralegal in a personal injury law firm. During those four years, I developed a strong desire to try cases in the courtroom – which may explain why I took 13 cases to trial during my first year as a licensed attorney.

Before attending college, I served as a mechanic in the U.S. Army for four years. This included a six month tour of duty during the first Gulf War.

As an Army soldier, I gained a strong sense of duty and learned the value of loyalty. These values have accompanied me throughout my years of legal practice. As an Army mechanic, I learned how vehicles work. This is an uncommon skill among attorneys, and it gives me great insight into cases involving auto defects.

I have been married to my beautiful wife, Isabel, for 20 years (time flies!), and have two wonderful sons, Alex, age 17, and Tommy, age 10.
