Getting you the legal assistance you deserve.

Like many general practitioners, I help clients in a wide array of issues. I have experience starting small companies, transferring liquor licenses, and drafting contracts for the purchase of equipment and inventory.

I have experience with, what I call, end of life issues from guiding a deceased person’s estate through probate to drafting wills, trusts, and powers of attorney.

I have experience defending people accused of crimes from trespassing to homicide.

I enjoy being involved in the important issues facing my community and hope to be part of the population that guides its growth for the next few decades.
