I grew up in the suburbs of Wilmington, Delaware to a modest blue-collar family attending public schools and sometimes struggling. After a less than stellar academic and sports performance in high school, I was a lost kid until I found my true talent. I remember like it was yesterday. I was working a sales job for a bank (MBNA) while attending the University of Delaware. The first night on the job, I sold about 24 credit cards and everybody else on the team sold 10 or less. I was shocked. Out of about 250 people I was consistently one of the top three salespeople at that division. This gave me the confidence and inspiration to go to law school. After graduating West Virginia University College of Law in the top half of my class, I scored a job as a prosecutor in the District Attorney's Office. Right out of law school I won 9 out of 10 jury trials and had a 99% win rate.* After that I was hooked. Trial work wasn't just a job, it was my passion. I vigorously studied the great trial lawyers like Gerry Spence, Johnny Cochran, and Roy Black. I believe it was my modest upbringing that drives me to outwork the competition. I have now dedicated my life to using these talents to deliver results for my clients.
When I started my practice in 2008, I never wanted to be the Walmart of the legal world. I visioned a practice that would deliver the highest caliber of customer service and spend an enormous amount of time and attention on each client's case. Quitting or selling a client down the river are not in my vocabulary. Ultimately, my goal is to deliver top tier results.
