I'm a small town lawyer at heart. I advise people faced with the incapacity or death of loved ones, and I help small business owners navigate the ins and outs of our increasingly complicated lives. I keep my fees reasonable and my advice practical. I prefer planning over panicking, diplomacy over advocacy, realism over idealism, and mercy over justice, but I won't back down from a fight when I’ve got one coming. Those old-fashioned values guide my practice and my personal life. God made my smile crooked, but my path straight. I’ve owned the same Ford since I was thirteen. I've been married once, to the same strong woman, from virginity until death does us part. My boys have heard me sing and seen me cry. Don't come to me for a divorce or bankruptcy. I’ll refer you elsewhere. Come to me for a considered opinion, for competent service, and last of all, for a fight if you've got one coming.
