He found that his most rewarding experiences were when he helped navigate clients through difficult situations.

In private practice, he was on a list of court-appointed attorneys handling guardianships and conservatorships for the elderly, poor, and mentally ill. As a prosecutor, he primarily handled crimes involving domestic violence and sexual assault. These experiences have enriched his point of view, and he looks forward to a long career supporting his clients in personal injury cases.
