Passion & Compassion

I am passionate about what I do, and I care about the people who trust me to fight for them. My clients take pride in their work and work hard every day to support themselves and their loved ones. I see the hardship my clients face when their health and security is taken away through no fault of their own. It’s a privilege and responsibility to be trusted to stand up for someone else’s rights. So I take my job personally, and I make it my personal mission to fight for a just result in every case.


"Never forget that justice is
what love looks like in public."

Cornel West
