“Never has it been more important for injured persons to have good, quality legal representation. It is truly an honor for me to be able to help those persons who need legal help the most. Insurance companies and big businesses are influencing the system and taking advantage of injured persons on a regular basis — anything I can do to prevent that remains my calling.”
