I have been representing injured persons for over 16 of my 23 years as an attorney. I have met some wonderful people, some of whom I still keep in touch with years later. After law school I did insurance defense for about 7 years. I represented most of the major insurance companies, some trucking companies and manufacturers. Seven years was enough for me to realize that helping people was more important than helping an insurance company or manufacturer. When not working, I try to spend time with my three daughters. This profession constantly gives me wake-up calls regarding just how precious our friends and family are.
