“I apply wisdom, experience, tenacity, and compassion to achieve client goals and outcomes consistent with high ethical standards.”

I take time to understand your issues and goals. I am straightforward and give my advice based on a thorough evaluation of the facts, the law, the cost associated with each alternative, and your best interests.

I represent a broad cross-section of individuals and businesses of all sizes, both plaintiffs and defendants. My practice focuses on:

  • business litigation ranging from non-compete agreements to trade-secret disputes;
  • environmental and toxic tort matters, including clean-up or remediation of contaminated property or release of hazardous chemicals; and
  • professional discipline matters involving licensing and credentialing.

I have extensive experience representing healthcare professionals, including doctors, nurses, dentists, and psychologists in disciplinary proceedings. Having served on numerous health licensing boards and as a government regulator, I have chaired or reviewed more than a thousand decisions. I know how the licensing board works and the applicable laws, and I possess the unique perspective of having been on both sides.

I am grateful to receive referrals, including those from opposing attorneys. My work is founded on my reputation for being honest, fair, cooperative, tenacious and ethical.
