Personal Statement: 

"I like taking on the good fight for clients that deserve aggressive legal representation.  I believe in dedicating myself to a particular cause, and fighting for that in and out of court.  I believe that our laws provide the framework to right a wrong, and that lawyers are the vehicle to achieve that.  We take that principle seriously when we go to court to protect our client's rights and interests within the bounds of the law."
