Advocacy is both professional and personal. I have spent my life working for the downtrodden, the dispossessed, the underdog. It has been my profession, my passion, and my great good fortune to give voice to the lives and experiences of my clients, and to use my creativity and ingenuity to vindicate their interests and guide their paths through the law.
