As a former Clark County Deputy Prosecuting Attorney and in-house insurance defense attorney for a large international insurance company, litigation is my passion. That is why I have chosen personal injury and criminal defense as my primary practice areas. Having worked these cases from the other side, I know how the insurance companies and prosecution strategize their attacks.
Of course, I believe an appropriate, fair settlement should be the primary goal due to the emotional and financial costs of litigation. However, when the other side does not play fair, and frequently they do not, then my past experience is invaluable and I believe a strong, aggressive offense is necessary to represent my clients against these powerful entities.When I am not in the court room, you can frequently find me at a race track with my two children, Brooke and Carson, where I enjoy racing open wheel formula cars.
