I’ve operated as a sole-practitioner almost all of my legal career. This significantly benefits clients because it means I do not answer to anybody else–you and your case are my top and only priority. Additionally, I maintain a general practice. Cases can draw on multiple different areas of the law, and having a lawyer with in-depth but broad experience may lead to better representation and a more efficient and positive outcome of your case.
Born and raised in Indianapolis, I graduated from the Indiana University School of Law at Indianapolis in 1981, after attending Indiana University-Bloomington for my undergraduate studies where I majored in English, Persuasive Speaking, and Political Science entwined with international economic considerations.
Following graduation from law school, I practiced in two smaller firms for a couple years before realizing my personality much better suited being my own boss.
I never looked back. A few years ago I also started teaching high school classes in government, economics, U.S. and world history, and important U.S. Supreme Court opinions. It is beyond fulfilling being able to help the next generation develop critical thinking skills necessary to be productive members of society.
