Professional Honors and Recognitions

“One of my ambitions in life was to find a profession that was consistent with my beliefs and allowed me to make a difference in the lives of others. The practice of law, and specifically representing injured workers and individuals, has provided me with this special opportunity. From the relationships with our clients to the help we are able to provide them, this remains one of the most rewarding experiences of my life.”
