Claimed Lawyer Profile

Why I do this:
In this profession, there is no better gratification than that which comes from solving an important problem for a client. Whether it is from presenting a substantial check to an injured person after a resolution of a personal injury claim, obtaining a discharge of thousands of dollars of debt for a person in a dire financial situation, saving someone’s home, or resolving one’s criminal charges, I experience a lot of satisfaction knowing that I just made a client’s life a bit easier or even better.

Folks who come to me with their financial affairs in shambles are often at the very worst point in their lives. In my initial meeting with them I try to assure them that there is a way out of the mess. And the great thing is...bankruptcy really works. No client has ever came back to me and said they regret filing---but many have told me it was the best choice they could have made in the circumstances they faced.

Personal Injury
I have over 20 years of experience working with injured Mainers whose cases have ranged from a few thousand to several hundred thousand dollars in value. I have represented clients against some of the most prominent insurance companies and the best defense attorneys in the state. Contrary to the images created by many television ads, the best results for clients come from thorough preparation of cases and not silly threats of litigation or catch-phrase slogans.

About me--the real person:

My most significant hobby is cooking, and I enjoy experimenting with all sorts of flavors and colors in my concoctions. I have been a big Rolling Stones fan since the age of 12, and have seen them on every tour since 1989. Many moons ago I was a passable rhythm guitar player (I still enjoy looking at my guitars hanging on the wall). And what would summers be like without the Portland Lawyers Softball League where I am entering my 28th season?
