How did you build a successful practice?
I respond quickly when called (almost always the same day). I work quickly and creatively to get answers to any question or problem presented to me. My hard work has translated into satisfied clients who are eager to refer their friends and family to me.

What should clients look for in a lawyer?
Someone who is going to represent their interests, fight to get them what they deserve, will return phone calls, and treat them like they would want to be treated.

How important is local knowledge to the success of your cases?
Local knowledge is important. Having relationships with other lawyers in the community can be key to getting a resolution in a case. Also, knowing judges tendencies/backgrounds can also be useful.

What information can you provide in a free phone consultation?
What type of case the client may have, whether it is something that I would be willing to handle and on what basis and what the next step would be (coming in for an appointment, etc). to get the ball rolling to get the potential client's problem solved.

What information do you need in a free phone consultation?
As much information as possible about your potential case (the facts, the parties involved, description of injuries, etc.)

What differentiates you from other lawyers in your community?
I am a young lawyer. Therefore, I am hungry to work hard and fight for my clients. I may not have as much experience as some older attorneys but I more than make up for that with my high energy "can do" attitude. I will put the in whatever time and effort it takes to represent my client properly.

What is the most rewarding aspect of your job?
Working with and being around people. Advocating people’s rights. Working with others to come to a resolution.

What are your other interests in addition to law?
Sports. I played college baseball. I like to take a lot of what I learned on the baseball field and apply it in my every day practice. Examples include: Working with others, working long hours, and doing what it takes to win.
