“I’m proud to be a trial lawyer and proud to fight for my clients who have been harmed due to the negligence of others. Our civil justice system provides a platform and equal footing for those who don’t have the resources to hold powerful corporations accountable. Whether it’s making products safer for children or getting fatigued truck drivers off the road, I’m honored to be part of a system that protects our children and families.”
