I am a compassionate trial lawyer. My job is to help people who are in pain and the people who are lost in the legal mess that follows workplace injuries, car crashes, and other serious injuries. The pain and problems that follow these injuries are often overwhelming. Injured Vermonters need someone to take some of the "weight off their shoulders" so they can focus on healing and getting back to the life they love.
I love my job as a trial lawyer because I get to use my compassionate side to take care of my clients and my competitive side to fight for my clients rights and to get them the settlements they deserve. I love helping people who need me and will work hard and fight to protect and help my clients.
