I use the law to recover money owed to businesses, commercial landlords, and individuals. My goal is to recover the maximum amount of money possible for my clients. This goal is implemented at all phases of representation, including review of contracts to ensure maximum entitlement to unpaid monies, negotiation, litigation, and judgment enforcement.

I enjoy working with committed business owners and caring landlords who, for one reason or another, have not been paid for what they have provided, contracted to provide, or who are otherwise owed money.

The next time you have a customer or tenant who is not paying you, please contact me. I will get to work right away to recover your money.

In 2016, 2017, and 2018, I was selected as a Super Lawyers Rising Star, an award given to a small percentage of attorneys based on 12 indicators of peer recognition and professional achievement. I have handled hundreds of civil litigation matters and have represented many businesses of all sizes and many real estate owners.

When you hire me as your lawyer, you can have peace of mind in knowing that:

  1. I will be professional and diligent and go to work to achieve the best possible legal outcome.

  2. I will communicate with you regularly and will be readily available by cell phone and email.

  3. I will provide thoughtful recommendations, opinions, and options.

  4. I will have the knowledge and experience required to appropriately analyze the essential answers and solutions.

  5. I will be ethical, honest, and fair.
