I am proud to be a part of the excellent team of trial attorneys at Cellino & Barnes. I have represented injured persons since my admission to practice law in 1988 and have derived great satisfaction helping people in their time of need. I relish the opportunity to zealously represent my clients whose lives have been adversely affected by the carelessness of others.
I have prosecuted cases against some of the country's biggest companies and insurance carriers. I appreciate my role as my clients' champion when they face a "David versus Goliath" confrontation in their personal injury claim.
I have found that success is dependent on 1) a focused, positive attitude, 2) disciplined preparation and 3) the relentless pursuit of the desired goal. I approach the practice of law with these principles in mind.
