I like to relate my success as an attorney to my success as a baseball player and coach. Baseball is a game of strategy and competition. In order for a baseball team to be successful, it requires planning, strategy, execution, teamwork, and a strong desire to win. And, I’m not going to deny it – I like to win! These are the very attributes that I bring to every client I work with and every case that I work on.
From your initial consultation, I will work with you and develop a thoughtful strategy (game plan) for success in your case. Implementing the game plan or strategy, like on the ball field, requires execution and teamwork. My team will work with you to execute the game plan and obtain your desired result.
My practice consists of two main areas of law: one I refer to as corporate based, and one I refer to as consumer based. In the corporate based component, I advise cities and towns, private business, and financial institutions on effective management policies and procedures as well as representing them in transactions and civil litigation. In the consumer based component, I represent people who are injured as a result of the negligence of another. I am especially skilled in this area because of my passion for justice, my knowledge of the law, and my strong desire to make a wrong right.
My clients tell me what they appreciate most in working with me is my collaborative, no nonsense approach and my strong desire to win on their behalf. They appreciate my ability to strategically put the right team together, combined with the right strategy to make a win possible.
In 1992 I graduated cum laude from Augustana College in Rock Island, IL with an A.B. in Political Science and Public Administration and a minor in Business. I received my law degree from VU School of Law in 1995 where I graduated cum laude. While in law school, I was Executive Editor of the Valparaiso Law Review and a member of the legal fraternity. I am admitted to practice in the State of IN, the United States Court of Appeals for the 7th Circuit and the District Courts for the Northern and Southern Districts of IN.
