I am an experienced litigation attorney and have practiced statewide in Kentucky since 2004. I spent 11 years primarily working for insurance companies and I know what they are looking for and how they value your case. I can use that experience to make your case more valuable.

That same experience helps me as a Mediator to help litigants compromise and come to an agreement to settle your case.

And, as a retired deputy sheriff, I am able to put my past experience to work for you in getting you the best outcome for you in the courtroom.
