Born and raised in Reno, I received a degree in accounting from the University of Nevada in 1981 and a law degree from the University of Notre Dame in 1988. Prior to attending law school, I was a staff assistant to Nevada Senator Paul Laxalt in Washington, D.C. I am currently a member of the Nevada Trial Lawyers Association, the American Trial Lawyers Association, and the alternate dispute resolution section of the Nevada State Bar.

My practice focuses on, but is not limited to the following types of cases:

    PERSONAL INJURY
  • Auto/Vehicle Accidents
  • Aviation Accidents
  • Defective Products
  • Wrongful Death
  • Premises Liability
  • Wrongful Death
  • Pedestrian/Bicycle Injuries
    INSURANCE LAW
  • Denial of Benefits
  • Unfair Insurance Practices

I have practiced primarily in the area of personal injury for 12 years and have extensive experience trying cases before judges and juries in Washoe County courtrooms. I have also won significant settlements and verdicts in cases involving insurance bad faith and wrongful termination. Since the Reno legal community is a fairly tight-knit one, being a Reno native helps me to have a good working relationship with judges, doctors, insurance adjusters and other lawyers. I will represent the client aggressively, while always maintaining civility toward opposing insurance adjusters and lawyers.

Before resorting to litigation, other alternative approaches toward resolving personal injury and other disputes, such as mediation and arbitration, are explored with the client before a lawsuit is filed. Even if a lawsuit is filed, these options are always left open to the client. I have received formal training in mediation at the ADR Dispute Resolution Center in Boulder, Colorado, and believe strongly in the advantages of mediation over traditional litigation.

All too often, the client is left in the dark about the procedural aspects of his or her case, causing needless worry and uncertainty. I will keep the client fully informed at all times, and let the client have a strong say in how he or she wishes to have their legal problem resolved. Any potential client should make a fully informed decision about which lawyer is best qualified to handle your case, and should have at least a fundamental understanding of the civil legal process in Nevada before making the important decision of which lawyer to choose. I invite you to read about the legal process in Nevada in my Glossary of Personal Injury Terms.

Anyone looking for an attorney will almost always find that the standard contingency fee charged by an attorney in one-third, regardless of the work actually done by the attorney. Quite often, however, I can negotiate a lower contingency fee depending on the complexity of the case, and will charge a lower fee if the case is resolved before it actually goes to trial, as the vast majority of litigated disputes are.

Please call me at 1-866-723-0608 anytime.
