In My Own Words

"I became a maritime lawyer because I wanted to do something every day of my life to help people; hardworking men and women, who had suffered harm or been injured at sea. I wanted to make the maritime industry safer for workers and hold employers and vessel owners accountable for unsafe conditions. I wanted to help my nieces and nephews, my siblings, my friends, and my daughter, all who have worked in the maritime trades.

I believe in taking care of my clients. It’s about getting to know them, learning how an injury or accident has impacted their lives, understanding their cases, and making sure that they get the very best outcome possible. I am very proud of the work I do and my track record of success. I believe it is my personal commitment to each case and my firsthand knowledge of work at sea that has allowed me to achieve such results."
