My practice has focused upon civil trial work, including litigation in the areas of dissolution, personal injury, business, and real estate. I have established a significant mediation practice where I try to assist parties in arriving at amicable agreements to resolve their disputes. When not practicing law, I ski, Bike and golf. While recovering from various sports injuries, I also make it a point to watch as many football games of my alma mater, Notre Dame, as I can.
