I have always rooted for the underdog. I don't like how the system favors big companies over individuals, and I thrive on being part of the fight to help everyday people match up against these powerful corporations.
Before (and after) becoming a lawyer, I worked on economic loss claims for individuals and small businesses that lost paychecks and income because of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. My accounting background helps me understand, analyze, and argue for my clients' economic losses.
In eight years against BP, I helped clients ranging from shrimp boat deckhands to seafood processors and distributors recover more than $50 million from various claims facilities acting on behalf of BP.
As an attorney I have represented people against drivers that weren't paying attention to their surroundings, against companies that refused to fix dangerous conditions on their properties, and against companies that wrongfully entrusted their vehicles to unsafe employees.
