The best way to understand somebody else is to put yourself in his place.

Clarence Darrow

Suffering an unexpected personal injury can be frightening and traumatic. The most gratifying part of his job is the initial meeting with clients where he can answer all their questions, explain exactly what to expect and alleviate their concerns in their time of need.  His practice includes all types of personal injury cases including motor vehicle, truck accidents, premises liability, construction negligence, and wrongful death and survival cases. He is an avid freshwater fisherman and can often be spotted in his waders in area lakes and rivers.
